One baby Bluebird !!

Next time perhaps, I should use a tripod so the pictures have perfect symmetry?! Hey, I’m just excited that I was able to see and photograph the event!!  ~~  At one o’clock the nest looked exactly the same as it has for two weeks.  1:45-1:47 and I’m curious because one egg looks slightly different.  1:50 and a crack appears.  ~~ I published the first batch of pictures at 3:20 while monitoring the TV and taking more pictures.  It’s 4:00 as I publish additional pictures.  Stay tuned; more to come.  (You think these are repetitious?  These are the best of one-hundred-plus shots!!)  I’m curious about Mama’s absence from the nest.  For days, and weeks, she has been on the nest every time I monitored it.  This is extremely interesting to me!!  Note the time stamps: All this in less than three hours.

Mama has returned.

It can't hold its head up.

Will siblings soon follow?
