We have been creating a wildlife habitat since April 2011 & received NWF certification last fall. Our plan included creating a small bluebird trail of 7 boxes & planting around 100 trees to provide wildlife corridors & places for the male bluebirds to perch to guard the nest. Currently 5 of the 7 boxes are occupied - 4 by bluebirds & 1 by tree swallows.
The eggs had not yet hatched when I did my last nest check on Saturday so these little guys are one or two days old & just developing a little fuzz. All four eggs hatched & as you can see all four hatchlings are gaping for food so all looks good here. Mom kept a watchful eye on my from a nearby tree & returned the to box 5 minutes after I had checked it.
