The second Blue Bird emerges.
|While checking on the Blue Bird box yesterday, I|
realized something was going on. to my surprise
there was a struggle going on.
|The young were trying to leave the nest. I've never|
witnessed this before, so I sat with camera, to
snap some pictures of the event.
|From the time I sat down it took the first young |
fifteen minutes to get into position and finally
fly to moma and papa bird.
|One final stretch.......|
|And Away it went. Momma and papa waiting.|
I will show the second young in my next post.
The second had a terrible struggle and I thought
I might have to open the door and let it out.

|The Helicopter was picking up water from|
a pond on a friend's property.
|Above it drops,|
and below it lifts.
Around and around very quickly.
|And off to make a drop on the fire. They do a great job.|
|Somewhat dangerous to themselves.|
|The above Photo shows the entrance as repaired,|
smoothed and sanded to prevent damage to
the Birds feathers. While standing to snap this
photo a Blue Bird flew out of the entrance. I
looked inside and there is a newly built nest.
|I waited 5 days to see if there would be any interest|
in the newly painted Box and there was none.
