|Day 1 of Nest Building 3/07/18|
Now back to BackerNest1 (that's what I've called it). On Saturday morning, I was able to spend a few hours observing and the female was super busy! Apparently, "The Hustle is Real"! She is ready to get this nest built and lay some eggs! This momma ain't messin' around!
She went back and forth with straw bits and pieces....and then she showed up with a beak full! I was excited to get a few pics of her hardwork!
Lastnight, we had quite a bit of rain so this Sunday morning wasn't quite as productive. Maybe due to the wet nesting materials. But, I did see some building going on. She should have the nest completed possibly tomorrow and then will start laying her eggs shortly after. Bluebirds lay one egg a day and usually will lay 5-7 eggs. I will keep you posted.
