Bluebirds! Season 5. Episode 6. Looking through feathers.

Tree Swallow, Charles River Peninsula, Needham, MA
I like the tree swallows that completely stuff their box with feathers. It creates a kind of roof over the nest.

It's not so good if you want to quickly count the number of eggs in the nest.

Today, peering through the feathers I spotted the year's first hatchlings.

And then, at box 9, the year's second hatchlings. It has begun.
