In April 2020 a pair of bluebirds took up residence in the birdhouse built the previous winter.

We named the Bluebird family: “The Blues” and we are documenting their activities on a semi-daily basis via the Bluebird Blog.

There were five fledglings in the original brood, which all successfully fled the nest after about 18 days. Since the first brood, more Bluebirds (we will call the extended Blues family) have migrated to the area and also resided in the nestbox.
