Bluebird Trail Monitor
March 27, 2013
Emiquon Preserve Bluebird Trail
Partly Cloudy, Light Breeze, 45 degrees
The bluebirds are late this year. I usually have eggs in the nest boxes by the end of March. This year, however, I just found my first "reservations" today...and only in 2 boxes. Apparently they knew about the big snowstorm???
The two boxes that contain the bits of grass are located on the ridge. The ridge is where I have seen the most bluebirds fledged since beginning the project in 2007.
