PIC OF THE WEEK: 07/20/15 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2015 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA
Notes: This is in celebration of the second brood of Bluebirds fledging this season from our side-yard Bluebird box. This is the sixth year in a row we have been Blessed with their presence at our suburban property. The first group produced five fledglings. The second batch had a three out of four success rate, because one egg did not hatch. The average brood is around three to seven eggs. The old nest has been thoroughly removed and the box cleaned. Clearing is preferred by this species and entices re-use of the same nesting box. It’s even possible for them to attempt a third brood within the same year, but they typically only raise two sets. It takes about ten days for the female to build the nest and the eggs take about two weeks to hatch. From then it is about three weeks until the young fledge. We have strived to keep the birdhouse well protected from local predators, which includes: domestic cats, chipmunks and squirrels. In other areas, that list might also include raccoons and snakes. This is accomplished with a tall, smooth mounting pole and a predator-guard baffle. The box is placed facing an open area. Bluebird box plans can be found on the Virginia Bluebird Society’s website.
