Two is the most I've ever seen with our bluebirds. One of the bird ID
programs says "2-3" broods, the others I've got seem to agree on two. I'm a
little surprised they've got the energy for a second brood; they do a lot of
work.

Ian,
You have given us an education. Think I mentioned I didn't realize species
would turn around within a week to repeat process. Do Bluebirds have a
third brood? I was exhausted after the first!
And, love the gorgeous loon photos, which I've been forwarding to a friend
in Orford, NH who's loon nest flooded before hatch.
Thanks,
Jan
