Eastern Bluebird (Sialia sialis)

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Eastern Bluebird (Sialia sialis)

Bluebirds use nests boxes. They build, wait a few days and then mom starts laying eggs. One egg per day is the norm. Incubation does not begin until she has laid all her eggs. This is brood one, I expect there will be 5 eggs, as there have been in past years.

Bluebirds eat insects, fruits and seeds. They feed insects exclusively to the baby birds.
