YORBA LINDA BACKYARD BIRDERS ---
Western Bluebird (female) gathering meal worms for its nest brood. In my bird blog below, if you'd like to hear a particular bird's song, just click on the link for that particular bird within the post. To enlarge a picture, just click on it once. For my very first, special bluebird experience, visit 2012-May 12th-Saturday. Thank you for visiting and from this day forward, may all your blues be bluebirds. Happy Birding! ~Olivia
Hey there bird watchers!! I was able to get a real quick pic of the 7 day old bluebird babies without getting dive bombed & pecked by the parents. All six are alive. The late bloomer is at the top left with a closed beak.
Oh my gosh! Six eggs today. I wish this did not happen because nature typically doesn't let that many chicks survive. Well, let's see what happens. Now that there are six, we'll move the hatch date out to the 9th or 10th of May.
Bluebird nesting box season 2017. Let's see what transpires. Hopefully there will be another successful fledge season.
Fifth Egg - 4*26*2017
I'm thinking this is the last egg. Once the last egg is laid, the incubation period begins so that all will be born at the same time. If this is the last egg, we shall see a hatch in 13 to 14 days. That will be May 8th or 9th.
Backyard Birders are typically very selective about who trims their big trees. Birds love a good tree trim and we Birders enjoy our trees occupied with nests come nesting season. We had an excellent tree trimming experience with the trim of our 10, 50 year old pine trees. The trimming was professional. Jerry gave excellent customer service; They cleaned up our yard, roof, sidewalks and Jerry even checked with the neighbors on both sides to make sure any debris was cleaned away to their satisfaction. They were happy also. I would definitely hire Vargas Tree Trimming Service again. Ask for Jerry.
