They've fledged!

The first brood of young bluebirds successfully raised in the Bob Campbell Geology Museum's nest box have left the nest.  Yesterday, they were all there!  There's currently an egg in the nest, probably one that didn't hatch.

Their departure is right on schedule with the developmental timeline that I posted (after the eggs hatched).

I think I saw that box when I was at the museum recently (or a similar one, perhaps?) Glad to hear their family was successful!

Hi, AF-
The box is the one to the right of the Museum (as you come up the path from the parking lot). It's just outside a window, and is the only one with a snake baffle. Successful, this year, hooray!
