Western Bluebird mother and her three chicks

After Bath Fluff

This Western Bluebird Fledgling enjoyed a bath and fluffed himself on the gutter of the roof after. He was pretty silly!

Almost Ready

This bold little guy was the first of 4 out of the nest the next morning, but the last to actually fly!

In Flight

Father Western Bluebird was frantically trying to meet the demands of the babies as they grew bigger.

Bringing Home The Berries

These Western Bluebirds nest in a tree in my yard. They usually have at least three batches a season. These parents had been from the last batch and barely lost their own speckles! The day before the babies fledged, they were pretty demanding!
