Bluebirds Rule at the NJ Botanical Garden

A while back, my wife and I found an uprooted bluebird box at the NJ Botanical Garden. After we failed to put it back into the ground, I let Bergen County Audubon president Don Torino know about it.

Yesterday he gave me an update:

Our volunteer Rich Greendyk, who does our bluebird boxes at the NJBG, said to give you a message.
"Hi, Don. Visited NJBG Monday afternoon. You can tell your friend who reported the downed box that it now has a brood of very tiny nestlings, probably about two days old.
"The other three boxes in the back field have one with tiny bluebird nestlings, and two with swallows (1 with eggs the other with tiny nestlings).
"Bluebirds are active in other areas of the park as well.
"I checked the box at parking lot C and it has eggs (second brood). So, that's the way it is, just to inform."
Thanks, Rich, Don and Bergen County Audubon Society!
