The baby bluebirds almost look like real birds now. In one short week, they have gone from featherless creatures that were all eyes and mouths to little birds with some tiny feathers, and eyes that are proportionate to their heads. The mother is very attentive to them. She seems either to be feeding them or standing sentry on top of their box. I was lucky to take a sneak peek at the babies when I caught her away.
Here are some things I saw this week
during a Second Look.
|I think the cold winter we had was hard on the squirrels because I'm not seeing as many as last year.|
|Most of the bleeding heart have already gone to seed, so it was a pleasant surprise to find these.|
|The mother bluebird guarding the box her babies are in.|
|All four babies appear to be developing well.|
|This what they looked like just one short week ago!|
