Day 118 – 365 Project…Busy Bluebirds

Welcome to day 118 of  365 photos…the bluebirds seemed late getting here to nest this year. They had come and checked the nest a couple of times early on and then we didn’t see them. We thought that they decided not to nest here when low and behold, they showed up and started to build a nest in the box. Before we knew it,  the nest was built and then five eggs appeared. Did you know that the female lays one blue (or rarely white) egg each morning until three to six eggs are produced. Incubation begins after the last egg is laid. Thirteen to fourteen days later, after incubation, all will hatch within hours of each other. This, from the  “NC Bluebird Society.” It is a lot of fun watching and photographing bluebirds.

Clean upGlad that you stopped by my self-project of a photo a day for 365 days. If this is your first time to my site and you wonder what this 365 days of photos is all about, click HERE to read the original post. Settings are added to the photos so that I can remember what I’ve used and can see if any future photos done with other settings turn out better or worse. Remember, this project is all about my learning more about photography.

Comments are always welcomed. I would love to hear from you.

    Glad to see you back up and running. I didn’t think the page was going to come up at first. I had to hit stop before it finally came up. Being able to watch the Bluebirds bringing food is one of the fun things about having a box. Lucky you on seeing the Kite! I have not seen one….yet. One of my hopes to see.

      I’m glad to be back up too, Paula. I think I fixed the loading problem but please let me know if it happens again. I was really excited to see the Kite too. That was a first for me.

      Fun to watch them and yes, they are VERY busy with five mouths to feed.
