A pair of Eastern Bluebirds have moved into a nest box at our Hildacy Farm Preserve. While we're always excited about bluebirds (we generally get about 200 fledglings out of our nest boxes each year), we are particularly excited about this pair because they've selected the nest box with a web cam in it!
We installed the webcam last spring, but a pair of Tree Swallows nested in the box instead of bluebirds, raising three young. (Tree Swallows are one of Eastern Bluebirds' main competitors for nesting space.
The pair of bluebirds started moving in last week, and they've already built their nest, although they have yet to lay any eggs. You can check in on them and watch them live throughout the spring by clicking here.
