Bluebird Box Update

May 1, 2017

Written by Cheri Collins

The wrens have won the next box, but there is still another surprise. It’s not the more common Carolina Wren, it looks like it’s House Wrens. We are on the very southern edge of their territory. The color of the eggs, the location of the eggs—at the back, and the feathers all lead me to believe it’s House Wrens. It’s hard to see down into the nest but it looks like there are 7 little brown speckled eggs tucked in there. In 12-16 days-time the eggs will hatch. The nestlings will stay in the nest for 10-16 days then they fledge.
