Baby Blues! Eastern Bluebirds
Mrs. Bluebird feeding her fledgling son at our feeder filled with dried mealworms. Awww how cute. We NEVER get tired of watching our bluebirds. These fledglings are about 4 weeks old now and are just beginning to be on their own. They are now using the feeder themselves. Mrs. Blue has built a new nest and starting another brood. You can tell this fledging is a male by the amount of blue in his plumage. He will loose all the spots and gradually acquire the beautiful plumage of an adult male.
