Bluebird Nest and Feeder Cam

You are watching a live view inside the nest box of eastern bluebirds. Incubation starts after the last egg is laid. Eggs will hatch after about 13-14 days. After hatching, the young bluebirds will remain in the nest for about 15 days. They will be brooded by either the mom or dad every day and night until they’re fully feathered. During this time the babies will be fed by both parent birds. Once the baby birds fledge they do not return to the nest.

Fledgling Stage – At the end of the nestling timeframe, the young birds will fly from the nest. They will be fed by the parent birds for about another 7 to 14 days. During this time you will see them around the vicinity of the nest. Very soon after the brood has left and is on their own the parent birds will start the nesting cycle over. They could raise as many as 3 broods in one season. Please note: if there aren’t any birds nesting, the camera may switch to a feeder platform. When nesting season is over you will see a view of bird feeders instead. This camera is located in Soddy Daisy, Tennessee.

We cleaned out the bluebird nest box and replaced the cam. What a job that turned out to be. Next nesting season we should have COLOR inside of the box. How exciting.

I cleaned and washed our bluebird house late yesterday and left the door open overnight. This morning hubby found the bluebirds had already started a new nest… he tucked in the straw/grass and closed the door. So another nest of eggs is just around the corner. 😊
