Tree Swallow Leaving Nest Box!

Tree Swallow Young!

The other day, I saw both the male and female Tree Swallows going in and out of the box. Because the weather wasn’t really nice, I waited until today to check the box. All four eggs have hatched!

Tree Swallow Eggs!

On the 30th of May I noticed that the female tree swallow wasn’t really leaving the nest box, so I thought that she probably laid at least one of her eggs. Just to give her some space, I decided to wait till today to check on them. In the photo, there are three visible eggs; but I believe that there may be one more underneath of some of the feathers.

Male Tree Swallow

A Fledgling American Crow

This is a American Crow fledgling that fledged just the other day. It has been getting close to my nest box that a pair of Tree Swallows are using. The Swallows try to fly on or in the nest box; but the presence of the Crow makes them not go in. When the Crow isn’t present, they will add some feathers and the female will incubate her eggs.

Just wondering if the Crow keeps on coming by if it will scare the Swallows off.
Also wondering if I mow the lawn if it will scare the Swallows off as well.

Checkling out the nestbox

A pair of starlings was looking at the nestbox. Hoping someone claims it soon!

Ruby-Throated Hummer

Fallen Nest ID needed!

Found this fallen nest under a Pine tree. We had some bad storms so it probably blew down then. It’s made out of pine needles and too small to be a mockingbird nest. Any ideas?

Bohemian Waxwing

Eggshell ID needed!

Spotted this eggshell when we were birding, any idea what bird made it?

Starlings checking out the nestbox

Today a male starling was looking at the nestbox, he inspected the whole thing and looked inside. He called over the female who didn’t look pleased with it. (She didn’t even look inside) There is a wasp inside. We tried blasting it out with the hose yesterday, it left, and now it’s back. I heard that vaseline can help. Is this true and how do I prevent the wasp from coming back?

Bird needs ID. Might be a female House Sparrow

Mr. Cardinal

Mr. Cardinal and two other cardinals (a male and female) came to visit.

The starlings are here!!!

Unlike most people, I love starlings! They are colorful and fun to watch. It’s exciting to have them visit. It’s sad that people don’t like birds like European Starlings, House sparrows, Rock Pigeons, Muscovy Ducks, Canada Geese, seagulls, Cowbirds, and other birds and they feel the need to kill, trap, poison, chase, and destroy their nest, eggs and young. 😭😢

ID please!!

ID please!!
