The bluebirds tended to rebuilding the nest in the box by Tuesday things were back in order. Both bluebirds have been sticking close to the nest since they started the overhaul. That's different behavior than we saw with the first brood. The first time, they got the nest ready and more or less disappeared for several days. Our wrens are still checking the other box on the deck several times a day. My suspicion is the bluebirds are protecting against them. But, they've all been in fairly close proximity in front of the deck without incident. Anyone have other ideas?
Thursday morning, Mrs. Moody laid the first egg of the second brood, that's the highlight of the video. On Friday, we got a second egg. I haven't reviewed the video yet, I should have caught it. I'll get it uploaded when I can.
