These are the same young bluebirds I photographed on the 11th. The mother bird is doing a fine job feeding them. She has also found another mate. He has taken the roll of protector, and visits the babies frequently. He has fed them a few times. This little "step father" is a young bluebird too...around a year old. It was surprising to see him take this responsible roll for these "step children." Perhaps humans could learn a lot from the bluebirds.
We thought there were only 2 babies, but we can see a third one on the left; and possibly one under the two who are awake.
