Baby blues!

The bluebird eggs have hatched after two weeks and these nestlings are coming along great.  They will be fledging in just a few days.  The mother bluebird still broods the young nestlings for several days after hatching.  Both parents forage for worms, moths and other insects.  In the picture, you can see the primaries developing, meaning flight is not all that far off.  Next, a close look at the bluebirds in the yard.
