Hey Raleigh...
sorry that you had to clear out a nest. Yikes, a screech owl. Sometimes a guess is not bad conclusion.
Thanks for the link.

Almost forgot...
JIm will check the nesting box around Thursday/Friday  this week.  So maybe then we'll see a pip.

Phyliz......just curious, is the box where you currently have eggs in the shade? I've seen some folks fashion a shade umbrella for the boxes when they have eggs this late in the season.
Hope you see a pip soon, and a successful hatch.

Bluebirds of Cane Ridge, Tennessee
And here they are...

Welcome to the world, Cane Ridge #49, 50 , 51 and 52 !
The precious guys and gals are out of the shell about 3  days when Jim took the photo this Thursday, 7-29-21.*
Chicks, you'll  have great parents and two humans that love you very much. :-* :-* :-*



* Including the day the photo was taken.

The juvies or teenagers, as I call them, are gone. It is doubtful if we'll see them again. But they were loads of fun while here. Then again...
there's the chance  Mom and Dad remain  with us until / thru the 2022 nesting season. Or they'will leave after this brood fledges and grows up ; a pair from clutch #2 will return and make a life here with us. Either way  ;) :-*


Post Script: Jim reports that he believes he saw clutch 2 teenagers early this morning.   ;D ;D ;D :-* :-* :-*

Congratulations on the successful hatch!! I'm glad your still seeing the juvies from a previous hatch. I had four lined up last evening on the deck next to the mealworm feeder. So much fun to watch. Cant wait to see pictures of your newest four as they grow.
