A photo essay of the various plants and animals encountered by students at Elms Environmental Education Center.
Five bluebird eggs found in abandoned nest box at Elms May 31, 2012.
We do not know why these eggs were abandoned. Did something scare her away? We do know however, that bluebirds can have two to four broods a year. So, she probably stared another nest elsewhere. Bluebirds typically nest between March and August here in the Northeastern United States.
