Third nesting!

True to form the bluebirds have selected the modified Gilbertson nest box for their third nesting cycle of 2009.  The first two nestings were in the nestcam box.  When we observed the bluebirds hauling pine straw to the Gilbertson, we put a small pile of pine straw near the nest box to make it easier for them.


Hard at work building the third nest of the season!
