Not an hour after I finished typing the last post.
Stopped to look out my back window, which faces the Bluebird house.
See the male Bluebird fly out carrying a fecal sac.
See a little brown bird fly into the house.
Storm out and head for the Bluebird house and sure enough a female House Sparrow bursts out and away.
Opened the box and took this picture:
Storm back to the house, dig out the Sparrow Spooker and my drill and head back out to put it on the box.
The female House Sparrow was in the box again!!
Put up the Spooker, check the babies. As far as I can tell they’re all breathing, but whether they’ll stay that way…..at least the one is definitely injured.
The Bluebird parents aren’t enthused by the Spooker, but after a few minutes of swooping back and forth they figured out they could still access the opening.
Cross your fingers…..
