On May 30th we opened the Bluebird nest box to see if the bluebirds has started a new family.

What we found was the female bluebird dead on the nest!  How totally upsetting!

We examined her body and found no wounds or areas of bleeding.   Have NO idea what happened to her.

We cleaned out the box.  The male bluebird is sitting in the top of the ponderosa pine tree crying.

All of us here @ the homestead are totally sad.
