Bluebird Monitoring (May 24, 2019)
It has been a busy couple of weeks for the bluebird fledging! New bluebird nests are starting to appear in the bluebird boxes.
The Bluebird Society did not check boxes 1, 4, or 6 because they are close to fledgling. Five bluebirds fledged in box 5 and box 14. The bluebird society monitored the following eggs along the Wren Trail (formerly the Morning Glory Trail) on the west side of Adventure Bay:
Box 5 - 4 eggs
Box 7 - 9 eggs
Box 11 - 7 eggs
Box 13 - 3 eggs
Box 15 - 7 eggs
Box 16 - 9 eggs
Box 18 - 3eggs
Box 20 - 3 eggs
Box 21 - 4 eggs
In Box 21, the Bluebird Society was concerned they may have lost 2 of the 5 eggs they started but this check confirmed there are 4 hatchlings.
The Bluebird Society is now affectionately calling themselves the Bluebird Brigade!
