Caption: to be spared! The gravel truck came through the campgrounds and dumped gravel on some of the well worn places. We saw it coming through and came back to check after work hours to find they hadn't been through this small driveway.

Oh, I did not know - Survival rate is not
all that great - following nature can be
heart-breaking. So sorry to hear the news.
I am a bit worried about a my bluebirds.
So far 1 of 3 eggs has hatched.
Am beginning to worry - Nature!

All was well one noon. before we came back out a couple hours later, the campgrounds were mowed and the wheels of the mower destroyed the nest. Out of the two nests and seven eggs, only one young one survived. The next day all signs of the nest and broken eggs were gone, like it was never there. The surviving youngster, was up and running as soon as it was out of the egg. Posted the pictures back a ways. Titled Survivor 4

That was luck! You just need to pitch a tent over that nest!

About Nikongranny


Old, retired with lots of time on my hands and a Nikon. Lucky for me, there is a park just north of town that provides me with migrating birds and sunsets. Since joining this site, I have a new appreciation for this scenic world we live in. I especially love the comments from so many great people on here.
