Four out of Five eggs hatch.
Day 2 after hatching. One baby was removed. After some research the most likely conclusion was that the baby had died and mother blue removed it.
Day 18 - Looking both ways before heading out
This little one was in the top of the tree in the front yard before dad blue went and coaxed the baby to fly over the house and into the tree line (green belt) behind the house. It was very windy and these blues were doing great and clinging on tight. What a treat to be able to witness this.
A final nest check. No sign of the unhatched egg. Mom Blue was a very good housekeeper. Time to clean out the nest box again and see if we can do it all again.
