Our bluebirds have their first egg!
Mrs. Bluebird should lay an egg a day for the next three or four days, for a total of four or five eggs. She won't start sitting on them until they're all laid. Both bluebirds will be close by the box keeping watch.
Our chickadees haven't checked into either of the boxes at the Piermont Library today. It is snowing here in the Upper Valley today. Let's hope they're waiting for the weather to improve before deciding on a box.
We're looking inside a nesting box with the bluebirds in West Newbury, Vermont. The chickadees are in Piermont, New Hampshire.
The cameras are permanently mounted in the boxes and we can watch without disturbing the birds.
