This is the last picture of the Brown-headed Nuthatches I took on May 6th before they fledged. Two days after that, they were gone.
I have Brown-headed Nuthatches nesting in my back yard.
They are nesting in my Bluebird box.
I added hinges to the top of the box for easy viewing.
There were four eggs and only 2 survived. They are now 2 weeks old and are fully feathered.
It was 4 days ago when I checked in on the Brown-headed Nuthatches and wow, they are almost fully feathered!
I checked in on the Brown-headed hatchlings and they are covered up so I couldn’t get a good look at them. : (
We had Brown-headed Nuthatches nest in one of our bird boxes last year and they did the same thing by covering up their five babies.
Getting a little bigger every day! They are about a week old now.
I thought all four eggs hatched, but maybe not. : (
We have Brown-headed Nuthatches nesting again in one of our bird houses! There are four eggs!
Baby Brown-headed Nuthatches 2 days ago.
The baby Bluebirds 2 days ago. I could hardly tell how many babies are there!
Today I can see clearly that there are 4 baby Bluebirds!
