The baby Bluebirds who left their nesting box yesterday were back in action today!
The parents have been trying to keep them towards the outskirts of the yard, but we all know how well toddlers behave!
This little one followed his Mom when she flew to the deck to get food. He waited on one branch for a few minutes and then got impatient and moved a little closer.
I’m pretty sure Bluebirds are born with that grumpy, bossy expression already in place!
It didn’t take Mom long to return with more than a mouthful of mealworms.
Next, Mom corralled thing one and thing two and situated them on a branch near the edge of the yard. Apparently, she let them know in very clear bird words that it was now nap-time, and the toddlers settled in for a bit of shut eye.
While the little ones slept, Mom did a bit of personal grooming on a nearby perch, while Dad helped himself to a drink and a bite to eat.
I love how he kept an eye on his family overhead.
When nap-time was over, Mom and Dad took turns delivering the twins their next meal.
The whole sequence of events was delightfully entertaining to watch!
