Our bluebird babies are doing just fine! The final egg hatched and we have five fat and happy babies!
We’ll label this day 2 of their life so far (even though it’s about day two-and-a-half for the first to hatch, and only day 1 for the newest!) They’ll be with us for the next 15-20 days, and we’ll be keeping you updated through pictures! Enjoy!
Mid-morning on Day 2, all five eggs have hatched. The oldest is at the bottom right, while the youngest has its head tucked down at the upper left of the picture.

These next three pictures are afternoon shots of the babies. They make me laugh all upside-down lounging around!
We’ll be back in a day or two with another update. Thanks for following along!
