Baby Pictures!

Bluebird babies started hatching today! In the nestbox by the driveway, this hungry baby was already hatched at 7:15 this morning.

And in the nestbox at the far end of our backyard, Mr. & Mrs. Bluebird had 2 new little babies as of 3:00 this afternoon. Don't you just love their fuzzy feathers!

It will be a busy time for these bluebird parents and hopefully the rainy weather predicted for the next couple of days won't have any adverse affect on these new hatchlings. Maybe I'd better think about purchasing some mealworms to help these bluebird parents who will be busy trying to keep their hungry babies fed....

You'll have lots of bluebirds plus others yet to hatch. Isn't this a fun time of the year for you, peeking in all the houses to see what you can find.
Why do baby birds have such big mouths and loud voices?
