Baby Bluebirds!

I checked the Eastern Bluebird Nestbox yesterday AM, and there were little baby bluebirds in the nest! I’ll check them out today, to be sure it’s four, or another number. I didn’t delve deeply into the nest yesterday.

They are just so cute though. Little tiny bodies and heads with fluff all over, but fairly naked looking. All jumbled up together. The thing to look forward to is opening the box and seeing them all start peeping and all the yellow mouths up in the air waiting for food from Mama Bluebird. Hungry Baby Birds, something all baby birds have in common, regardless of breeding. 🙂

UPDATE [10:34am]: I just checked the box with Victoria, and there are four (4) babies in the nest. Cute little things, Victoria was very impressed with them. She’s seen such things before, but she is 5 now, and that means more to her this year when seeing live animals and their babies. 🙂

UPDATE [06-16-2004 2:06pm]: I have the photos uploaded now. See the thumbnail on the right, click to view the post individually and there you will see the whole post with several thumbnails. Click each to see a larger image. This is a new plugin I’m using called “Exibit” for WP. There is some other functionallity I’d like it to have. I still have to play with config stuff to make Exibit do what I’d prefer. So the functionality may change at any time, but the photos will remain in this post.

These photos are from June 2, 2004, four baby Eastern Blue Birds in their nestbox, just a few days old.

  1. Tamara,
    Digital Camera is giving me trouble — off and on it just won’t work right — despite sending it back for service … so I loaded film into my Canon Rebel and shot a couple pics of the babies on film … I’ve no idea when they’ll be available to upload here 😉 (I’ve got at least 5 other rolls awaiting development still from months back)

    IF the digital decides to actually work when I can get out to the nest box, I’ll get something online to hsow y’all right away!

  2. Shhh, don’t remind me about those undeveloped rolls of film in my desk drawer! 😉 Now that we have a digital it’s sooo easy to just keep snapping away…I’m still behind sorting and dealing with pictures even if they are on my harddrive!!! 😛

    Will look forward to seeing some in the future sometime then! 🙂

  3. Tamara, I do have some pics from June 2, digital decided to work — go figure. But I’m left with deciding what to upload, and getting such pics ready for the web — a daunting process for me, for some reason, lately. (You would have noticed by now that I’ve not loaded ANYTHING in my PHOTO LOG for a very long time.)

    Well I’ll say that for many things the Winter was doldrum-ish for me, and being with child perked me up for too short a time before tired-ness wore me out, and since then and the miscarriage I’ve been blah — but just recently I’ve interest in some things again 😉 so I’m hopeful for better things to be happening all around — like with photos on this site. sigh.
