The birds have certainly been busy. We have just seen many new birds fledge and I thought I would give you some numbers.

Summary August 15, 2013

To date we have had ten Tree Swallows, forty-two House Wrens, and twenty-two Bluebirds fledge. The Bluebird total is from thirty-three eggs distributed between nine nest attempts. That is a 78% rate of success. We should be very proud, considering this is our first year of monitoring. But it isn’t over yet. Bluebirds can breed well into September, so we will keep watching the boxes. Let’s keep our wings crossed.
