I planned to wait another day to post an update on the bluebird babies. However, I did a quick "look see" yesterday, and look what I found! One day does make a difference at this stage. Their little blue feathers are so pretty. I had to share. But, not too many more days before they will be flying away.
From my research, I have learned that the male will continue taking care of the babies for about a month after they fly away, what a relief. This male should get a Klondike bar or a case of mealworms (their favorite food). ha! The male has been right there for these babies. The female is only a few feet away busily making another nest. Hopefully, if the sparrows do not interfere, more babies soon.. we will see.
I did check for breathing, they are fine!!!
Blue feathers, so neat!
Sleepy heads, they are growing every day.
The female is busy making a new nest, I hope the sparrows stay out this time.
