Eggs!

We now have at least one nest and egg from each of our most common early-spring birds! (The ash-throated flycatchers will start arriving later in the season.) Here’s a bluebird nest that already has five eggs:

Tree swallows are dominating many sites so far, and others have an abundance of house wren nests in the works.

Our many helpful volunteers have been checking nestboxes with us starting earlier this month. The rain seems to be mostly over with for now, so more of our flooded nestbox areas are becoming accessible. We’re expecting many more eggs to come.
