Wow Carol, good thing Father's Day is right around the corner! :-)
Beautiful captures with tons of awwww factor as Dad tends his brood. I always enjoy re-living Spring through your images as it's pretty much Summer here now.

Beautiful set, Carol. I still have not found much Bluebird activities in my area.

Do you have any nest boxes?

What a beautiful set Carol. I am so looking forward to checking out the rest of them!

Thank you I just need to find to go through them all and pic my favorites. It is looking like the bluebirds will be keeping me busy. Another nest is in progress.

Superb sequence. Love these birds and it's great to see them feeding the young.

Thank you and mealworms are definitely a bluebird's favorite delicacy.

Great series Carol,

Very jealous - I tried several times to get good Bluebird shots during my last couple of visits to the US and failed each time.

The youngsters are very cute.

Thanks everyone and I will be posting more soon. I have had to fight off the sparrows again as they tried to take over a nestbox. I kicked the male house sparrow out as my bluebirds watched from a near by tree and then hung some more flash ribbon. My bluebirds couple was very happy and returned to reclaim the box.
I have had to be vigilant to keep those pesky house sparrows away and the bluebirds know I am their friend. It is very interesting to watch. I am glad everyone is enjoying the photos as much as I do! LOL
