Let the past sleep, but let it sleep in the sweet embrace of Christ, and let us go on into the invincible future with Him. (Oswalt Chambers)

Baby Bluebirds Day 12

They are old enough to act like wild birds now. They can't fly yet, but when faced with a human invader, they hurry to the corner of the nest box and try to hide.

When I worked a corporate bluebird trail, this is the age the Kalamazoo Nature Center would band the chicks.

The two survivors of the excessive heat and mosquitoes are both female. Read what you want to into that.

I wish these little ones a happy bluebird life with many bright sunny days of freedom outside the box.

So glad they're going to make it! How long before they fledge?

Did the parent birds remove the little ones who did not survive?
