Nesting season has begun for the Western Bluebird, and so I've been out monitoring birdboxes with the Southern California Bluebird Club.
|A clutch of eggs-- is the one at top center starting to hatch?|
|Bluebirds aren't just nesting in boxes!|
Last year several juveniles emerged from a nest here.
|Not far away, cowbirds a-courting.|
The presence of these brood parasites is slightly worrying,
but it will be fascinating to watch them in the next few months.
