We have two bluebird boxes that get a lot of use, though never at the same time. This was the second brood this year.
I tried getting closer but they're all too skittish for that. The pictures are greatly magnified, so the quality isn't wonderful. But you can sense the cuteness.
I love that little patch of blue on the tail.
There are three or four fledglings... they won't hold still long enough to count. The parents are still feeding them.
