Keeping Watch







There are baby bluebirds in the house and Mom and Dad never stop feeding them and keeping them safe. The squirrel doesn't dare come to eat these days. Last week, mom and dad were dive bombing at the squirrel until it finally ran off.
Here are a few photos of recent activity: Keeping Watch * Removing shell from the nest * A snack from Mom * A snack from Dad

I hope I'm not in SC when the little ones decide to leave the nest. If I'm here, I will certainly take pictures of the little ones jumping.

Our Phoebes last year were fledging just as I came home from work. One got in the garage, mom kept going in and hopping up and down flapping her wings trying to encourage it. No luck. I finally went into the garage and moved the item it was behind and off it took flying towards mom. It was great watching them and I managed to get several good photos. Our Bluebirds nest in the box too far from the house for me to see, have wrens in their old house.
