Bluebird Update

4 eggs have hatched!  Did anybody notice when?  Helpless little things.

UPDATE May 20, 2010:  Pennsylvania Game Commission issued another press release.
In late April, the female bluebird laid five eggs, of which four hatched beginning May 13. It is expected that the fifth may not hatch, as it is not uncommon for one egg from a clutch to turn out to be infertile or fail to hatch. Depending on conditions, the four chicks may fledge – leave the nest and fly on their own – by the end of May or early June.

For more information on bluebirds, visit the Game Commission’s website (, click on “Wildlife” in the menu bar in the banner, then choose “Bluebird” from the listing under the “Wild Birds and Birding” section.
