As the countryside turns green we are welcomed by blue birds singing.in the forest. Soon they wil lay blue eggs in their nests. After around two weeks the eggs will hatch revealing the fuzzy chicks. The mated pair will share in the pardnting duties until the fledglings leave the nest. Check out Cromwell Valley Park if you want to attract blue birds.
