Baby Eastern Blue Birds

The first clutch of eastern blue bird eggs didn't make it. We're not sure why, but a new nest was built on top of the nest with the eggs. We removed both nests, and a set of blue birds built a new nest. It could have been the same pair. The new couple laid 5 more eggs. The eggs hatched, and we now have baby blue birds! This picture was taken on June 25th, and now the babies are almost ready to fledge. I have seen the male taking away the little white sacks of debris from the nest pretty often. I'm hopeful that we'll get to see the babies at our feeders soon!

This is a picture of the female blue bird peeking out of the nest.
