“The Eastern Bluebirds are about done nesting in the Arboretum nest boxes for this year. Sylvia Marek’s report from a couple days ago indicate that 31 have fledged already and a couple more are about to. I’ve attached a photo of two fledgling Eastern Bluebirds. They are delicately speckled all over. So cute!” Read Chuck’s Weekly Birding Report #20.
