Was thinking about cleaning out the bluebird box since all the young had fledged. When I walked over to the box I noticed a bird with it's head sticking out of the hole? At first I thought the sparrows had moved in but eventually the bird flew out of the box and it was a tree swallow. I hope to get pictures tomorrow. It hasn't been more than a week since the bluebirds left.

Checked the bluebird box this evening. These guys will not be around much longer. Looking at other pictures of fledgling bluebirds I would say these are older than 12 days and they usually leave the nest at 16-22 days. I count 5 birds.
