The First Baby Bluebird Hatching from Egg

Here They Come! (video)

The first of the four eggs hatched this afternoon! And it was just like in the cartoons! 😉

Breaking into the world is hard, no matter the animal. Happy little first-born seems to want two things: to get the shell off his head, and maybe some grub.

Watch and you’ll see mom remove the eggshell. Last year I captured mom eating the shell.
