Wordless Wednesday...They Grow Up So Quickly
The baby bluebirds left the nest about 10 days ago and we’ve spotted a few at the feeder and in the trees around the yard.
It’s hard to believe that these little baby birds fit in the birdbox that we have! We’ve learned that mom and dad will continue to feed the babies for possibly the next 30 days. They come to our feeder and chow down on mealworms then fly off to the various trees where the babies live.
I’ve read that the babies don’t return to the nest but I feel a little sad thinking they’re out there on their own.
But like our children, we have to let them spread their wings and fly.
