Bluebird babies in the nest.Wednesday, August 7, 2013, 9:00 AM: Status quo. Specifically, the nest remains the same. (No rain.)

12:00 noon: The “parents” (below) were attentive and protective!! The surrogate grandmother (me) sat on the patio hoping to see a baby fledge. (Took dozens of pictures.) I felt compelled to check the nest but was cautious and quick!!
