Bluebird Chick Update

I think the birds are about 6-7 days old now. They have a natural “gaping” response whenever someone enters the birdhouse, so that means we get good pictures. 🙂
I think this is some rogue worm that Momma bird brought in and wasn’t eaten. Momma bird took care of it.
Momma bird feeds the babies.
Poppa bird pauses in getting a mealworm to see who’s watching him.

Here is a great explanation of what you can expect to see as the chicks develop – very cool!
