We Have Achieved Egg(s)

Update----I checked the nest this morning and there were three little eggs in there. So my first check was in the middle of the laying time...oops...

Well, as of last night when I was watering, there was one bluebird egg in the nest. I don't think the second and third clutches are as big as the first each year so that might be it.

You should have seen them divebomb this squirrel that ventured too close to the nest box...he didn't know what hit him.

On another note, the birdbath that we finally moved over near the feeders is getting tons of use. We have had some hot weather the last couple of days and the birds are hilarious in that thing. They get in there and just throw water all over the place with their wings until they are completely soaked. There was actually a line of them waiting to use it....

Okay, I'll see if I can get a picture before it hatches. I can send you pics of the last clutch...after they hatched but before they flew the coop...

Do they have a little machine that says "Please take a number" for while they are waiting? I can just picture it :)
