Guarding my lovely bluebirds
Couldn't see them too well and not really responsive to stimuli within box

Causing me to pull nest and ever so quickly permit sun rays to touch them, two seconds maximum, causing more movements,

while still not much. Pretty sure they are simply full and just soundly sleeping. I've had them do that even when removed from their nest, during nest changes. One does appear that it may have incurred a bit of a booboo, though. Will check it more closely within the coming days.

Mommy Bluebird was nonplussed over all, causing me to quickly replace all.

This cuteness is what greeted me moments ago.

Decided to wait until this morning to pull them, last day that I could have done so, without risking early fledging. Did not wish to risk a late afternoon fledge yesterday. Each look good. Took a few photos while out and about to go through them but looks like two males three females (possibly three males).

I simply did all directly below the box, with Mother Bluebird above chirping up a fit of storm while refraining from dive bombing. No idea where Daddy Bluebird may be, because he did not show himself as usual, and I was there for a good while with all.
