One of our resident squirrels came up about 4:31 pm for a quick meal. There was Dad #2
 (offspring CR #49)     standing guard over his nest.
I knowI know a cell phone isn't the photo quality matching  that
of a high quality professional camera or a research nest cam. We're just a common 'mom and pop' nature loving couple
that were blessed 22 years ago with a pair of human loving wild bluebirds that through the generations have chosen to nest
in our nesting boxes repeatedly for some mysterious reason.

The kids ... took a peek in them about 11:35 pm...
looks like we have four to start off the 2024 nesting season.
We're looking at future Cane Ridge #61, 62, 63, 64.




Hopefully, this weekend we can get another snap of 'the kids'.

Cane Ridge Bluebirds, Cane Ridge, Tennessee April/May 2024

"They've fledged !"


4-19-24 3:03 pm I was very late in my monitoring as my husband, who,usually does the photo taking and reporting
back to me for documentation /posting. Has been in Southern Hills Med Ctr. for some AFib and draining his lungs of
fluid that's been sitting  inside his  chest cavity.

Cane Ridge Bluebirds, Cane Ridge, Tennessee April/May 2024

4-23-24 12:54 pm Mom with CR# 65 or 66 on feeder pole.  With the 'kids' having left home (fledge) while I was
occupied with Jim's hospital stay. I wasn't able to fully ID them according to their development/markings and all.
So after 22 years of following our bluebirds I thought I was qualified in making an 'educated guess'.


The fledglings have returned from 'flight school' . Guessamation the fledglings have been in training about a week.
