These eastern bluebirds act as if they are going to have another clutch of eggs. She has been in and out of this nest box and they are paying close attention to it.

Thanks, Mike. Yup, I did my best with it - lightening the shadows, a touch of dodging - but ultimately it wasn't recoverable. :cry:

Nice shot Shalu. Kinda sad, because her chances of survival are pretty slim.
