Bluebird Young Ready to Leave the Nest…

Bluebird Young Ready to Leave the Nest…

The other night I was out on my back deck watching the Eastern Bluebird mom and dad going back and forth to their “Purple Martin” house nest.

Both mom and dad would bring food to the young. This is a full time job! They didn’t stop feeding their young until the Barred Owl landed nearby and they went off to harass it…

Here’s a photo of mom bringing them a bug.

After she fed them, they looked like they wanted to jump out of the nest and follow her…

They were definitely getting big. So far I’ve seen 3 of them in the nest.
