Here they are!


It's warmer today, and sunny, so I took the opportunity while the parent birds were away to open the nest a bit to take this photo of five little baby bluebirds! I know they just look like a furry blob, but the picture is sharp, it's the babies that are fuzzy! They really fill the nest up now. They are about twice as big as they were on Mother's Day when I first saw them. They have to grow fast to be able to fledge in a couple of weeks! Papa flew in to see that I hadn't disturbed his children not long after I came back in the house. They tolerate house-monitoring very well, but they have to make sure everything is as it should be when I leave!
