The Blue Family – Part 11 – New mouths to feed

Hatchlings

All 4 eggs have hatched and brood #2 is alive and well. We guess the hatch date was on the 4th of July (how patriotic). If this brood develops at the same rate as the first, then they should be fully developed around July 22nd. I don’t want to miss fledging again.

Parents

We are still unsure if the parents are the same adults from the first brood. The adults do not seem as comfortable around people as they did last month. Maybe it is because the babies are early in development.

It will be interesting to see if/when the female moves out. Currently the female is in the nestbox most of the time, but the male was the primary caretaker in the first brood.
