Mountain Bluebird eggs
Mountain Chickadee eggs
The Chickadee nests are made up of mostly moss and fur while the Bluebird nests are all dried grass.
In addition to 77 eggs, we also found 2 new moms with a total of 10 hatchlings.
Western Bluebirds a few hours old
Unknown if these are Western or Mountain Bluebirds - 1 day old
It's hard to believe these little guys will fledge in about 15 days.
Although our main focus is the two species of Bluebirds in this area, we monitor all nest activity (even the squirrel that scared Mark half to death when he opened up a house!)
