No, I don't recommend handling your Bluebirds without good reason.  Thankfully, Jenny is acting more like our camera expert!  You can see her pictures on the HOME page of eggs and babies. This is a good picture of what the baby bird actually looks like.  We normally would just see lumps of almost feathered bodies, heads and beaks. 
 
Jenny's was the first nest box in our Project, to be used to breed in, time after time, on her Trail.  That same box, is still used year after year.  Now, I hear that other boxes on her Trail are being used.

BOB WEPPLER - MONITOR

Bob was the Monitor for two Trails, M 8  1-5 on State Rd 70, and M 9  1-11 here at the River Club Golf Course.  No signs of Bluebirds have ever been found at either Trail.  Bob made our predator guards, and cranked them out with perfection! 
 
The predator guard is the Ron Kingston guard, and I like to say it is the Ron Kingston Predator Guard with the Bob Weppler Modifications.
 
Bob will always be, a huge part of the success to Christy's Bluebird Project.  The dozens and dozens of Predator Guards he made, were just perfect and actually beautiful.  Those guards now are, and will be, for years to come, helping to protect our areas breeding Bluebirds.  Bob Weppler is a Great Bluebirder!

NOT A BLUEBIRD BOX! BUT OSPREY NEST

ON STATE RD 70

No, Dick does not have a Trail of Osprey Nests!  Isn't this a fantastic addition to his bird boxes!  He purchased a telephone pole and added a platform and fenceing around it.  He hired a pro to put the pole into place.  Now that is really something!  He would like to see more people in the area put up their own Osprey nests.  The cost was about $160.00 for materials and the installation.  Way to go Dick!  Dick has since moved away from this location.
