Museum Bluebird box

Snakes, prepare to be baffled!

We are hoping to have a first successful bluebird brood from this box, originally set up by an Eagle Scout with a web cam connection.  Dave Cicimurri has secured a metal baffle, which hopefully will prevent predation (quite common in these boxes).  The female bluebird is, right now, sitting on her eggs.  This is a screen shot of the web cam minutes ago.  See the previous post for a view of the eggs.
