May 15, 2017 Update

We have 5 white eggs for the second time!  Less than 5% of all eggs laid in a season are white and this is our second batch!  The color of the egg does not affect the color of the new birds.

We currently have 27 Bluebird eggs spread among our 21 boxes.  There are also 12 wood duck eggs in the box next to the lake behind number 3 green.

There are 10 Bluebird and 5 Carolina Chickadees chicks in different boxes.

And, currently there are 13 empty boxes.
