Ten Days old

This will be the last image from the third clutch as it's unsafe to monitor the nest after the thirteenth day. The Raccoon baffle is once again saving these babies, footprints line the outside of the cylinder baffle, none of the Raccoons have been able to scale it. These attempts have only happened with the third clutch this year. I also feel that this box, the Classic 22 front opening box, with hangover roof, helps to protect from predators.

***All four babies successfully fledged on August 5. The total number of babies fledged from this box in 2018 was 13.
