@giddy up ....Soooo precious....love the pics.  I just mounted a Cedar bluebird house too!  Along my driveway, on a palm tree.

I have a barn for my horses...I get nests in the craziest places...not sure what type of birds.  But I love it.

Have you tried a Sparrow spooker?

 


I will have to look into that.


 

 

@giddy up   Go to sialis dot org and read about sparrow spookers.  You can order an inexpensive one that works great.  You put it up after the first egg is laid and take it down after the babies fledge.  Be sure and take it down so the house sparrows don't get used to it.

Notice in the last photo that their eyes are still shut 8 days after hatching.

@giddy up , thank you for sharing, this is cool. Mom and Dad are pretty little things, we dont have blue birds here in the PNW or anywhere on the west coast that I know of. Looking forward to seeing these babies as the grow! Loved their debut pic with the little mop heads haha!  Smiley Happy
