The current family of Bluebirds in my live-streaming nest box seem to be thriving. Three little fledglings are growing up fast. They have tiny parents who are both very actively feeding and cleaning.

Bluebird hatching livestream
If you want to watch some baby bluebirds hatching, there's currently 2 hatched and 2 still in eggs. I'm live-streaming the camera here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCugLq3KZSbTHtohJxZ68s1w
First egg showed up this morning! #bluebird #nest #nestcam #birding
