Re: Birding

Checked on the bluebird nestlings, and it appears we have only one, but large, healthy and clearly growing blue feathers. Neat.

Yesteday, we didn't detect movement, and thought a predator had killed the nestlings.

For those with nestboxes, if on poles, do you usually install some kind of baffles to deter predators, or is that not a common problem?

Perhaps a Wild Birds Unlimited franchise would be an interesting sideline ...

Re: Birding

My birdhouse did not have any form of security for the baby birds. The only problem I had was Blue Jays trying to eat the Quail/Mourning dove food. The parents would chase the Blue jays away and I helped by scaring them when I saw them. I'd assume your parent birds would be keeping a sharp eye on the baby.

My baby birds were out of the nest within days of them peeling out of the house. Maybe yours has moved on as mine did.
