Ranger Pete: Another exciting week for monitoring with hatchling Bluebirds observed with only a few days left before they fledge. Five chicks were observed on Wednesday May 27 in Box 1.
Nesting activity has really picked up with several boxes with eggs to hatch in the next few days. Box 4 has five Tree Swallow eggs, Box 5 has five House Wren eggs, and Box 6 three Tree Swallow Eggs. The students have already gotten to see two complete nesting cycles from an Eastern Bluebird and an American Robin this semester.
