After the trauma of loosing their first two babies from a Sparrow attack..... my Bluebirds are back and have laid these 4 eggs..... From everything that I read, they are VERY tolerant to human monitoring :) so... I decided to monitor :) they should hatch within the next 2 weeks. I will try my best to get a shot of them each day before they leave the nest.
It will take 15 to 17 days before they are ready to leave, but I can't open the box after the 13th day for fear of them leaving too soon, before they are ready!! STAY TUNED!!!!

    This is exciting! We just put up a couple of Bluebird Houses a few days ago and already one of the houses is occupied...In fact my husband opened the top of it to peek inside to see if it was occupied and the bird flew out like a rocket ship...I like a dummy screamed because it was unexpected and missed the shot. I hope I didn't scare it alway forever:) Love your picture of the eggs.
