Baby Bluebirds

We have several families with baby bluebirds that have left the nest.  There are baby bluebirds squaking for Mom and Dad’s attention everywhere.

“The bluebird carries the sky on his back.”  Henry David Thoreau 1852

This baby bird has been sitting on the lawn swing un-patiently, making much noise, waiting for his parents to bring some food.

Poor Dad has been trying for over a Day to get their sister out of the birdhouse.

Finally the little guy on the lawn swing has had enough of these absent parents and has landed, a few feet away, and found his own food.

Finally – sister – has decided to make her grand entrance – landing on the top of the lawn swing.  Girls are so contrary! Ha
