I spent the day defending this nest for a couple reasons.
- This bird is CUTE, an Eastern Bluebird
- She has eggs in this nest
- A bunch of other birds were attacking this nest, and only the mom and dad bird could defend it.
Here's where the problem comes in...........
The bluebird was so on edge from all the adrenaline (so I assume) that if I opened my blinds or had them open to check on the nest it would spook her and she would fly away. SO here's my solution I hooked my baby monitor camera up to the door so I could keep tabs on her. That is of course after I (NATURALLY) did some research and learned her predators and what food she eats. OH...... and after I observed her for a couple of hours (probably just one...... probably) in my binoculars.
