So I've talked about the swans... Let me introduce you to, the bluebirds.
As I mentioned previously, I put a bluebird nest box up in my yard and it was a complete success. The parent bluebirds, named Marla and Tyler, did a fantastic job of raising four healthy offspring.
Who are fledging today. So by tomorrow at the latest, the nest will be empty. I'll have to clean it out. Make repairs to the box, and re-mount it for the next clutch.
Three are already out of the nest, one lone baby, who may or may not be 24 hours younger than the siblings, is still in the nest figuring out what to do next. Meanwhile, the parents are still feeding them in the nest, while keeping eyes on the ones that are now who knows where getting their wings together. Here is a timeline of their growth from eggs until today. They hatched April 1st. Not a joke.
I'm Kirsten. Some things you could label me with; tattooed, geek, mama, animal lover, weirdo, nerd, writer, movie and TV addict, lazy, ambitious, insomniac, feminist, LGBTQ+.
