There has been lots of activity this week in and around our little birdhouse. After the display of frisky behavior the other day, I strongly suspected that Mother was getting ready to lay her eggs.
Sure enough, when I checked on Tuesday, there were three little eggs in the nest! I peeked in on Wednesday, and found this!
Mother birds, just like chickens, lay one egg per day in their nest until their clutch is complete. I will keep peeking in to see if she lays any more eggs.
Last year, a sneaky cowbird laid its egg in with the bluebird eggs, and the parents raised that baby as their own. Lazy old cowbird.
Wonder how many bluebird babies we’re gonna get this year?
