We were going to put up the swing then I noticed some serious squawking coming from inside the post. I can't get a picture of the babies but have a couple of Mamma. She flies in one opening and out the other. Needless to say, the swing isn't going up for a few weeks.
The first batch of baby blue birds died:( I think with all the rains, the parents couldn't get enough food. So I set up a feeder with disgusting mealy worms in it, which the birds don't seem to have any interest in. Not that I blame them. Even though the worms have passed on to their next cycle of life I keep expecting them to wriggle. They really look alive. Anyhoo, the blues started rebuilding the day after we cleaned the nest out. And now both Mr and Mrs are flying in and out on a regular basis, so I think the newbies have hatched.
And the rest of the pictures are just toss ins:)
Did you have a good weekend, buds?
