We continue to worry daily about our nesting pair of Western Bluebirds. The Violet-green Swallows are still hanging around and creating lots of congestion in the front yard, even after I moved the box to the backyard, and the female Bluebird seems to spend way more time than we think she should away from the nest. I checked the nest yesterday while they were away and they still have 6 eggs. This is what I observed this morning, the female left and she and the male spent time at the suet feeder, then they flew off. After a while the male came back, looked in the box, and then went in the box. He then came out, and quick as a wink she was in the box. It takes 2 weeks for incubation, and that dead line will be coming up this next Monday. So for now---we still have our fingers crossed.
