Out On a Limb

Out On a Limb. This baby Eastern Bluebird was hatched April 23, 2019 and fledged May 12, 2019. Here he is on a tree in my backyard, within 25 feet of where he was born and raised. He’s as cute as a button! Little does he know, there are 5 eggs in the nest box, so he will soon be meeting his new siblings.
