parents feeding fledglings. Photo by Lynn Shoeninger.

Lynn Shoeninger of Limerick, PA took these photos. This female only laid two eggs, of which one hatched, so this little guy is really getting spoiled. Bluebirds typically have 4-7 eggs per clutch.

The parents are feeding their fledgling mealworms.

You cannot begin to preserve any species of animal unless you preserve the habitat in which it dwells. Disturb or destroy that habitat and you will exterminate the species as surely as if you had shot it. So conservation means that you have to preserve forest and grassland, river and lake, even the sea itself. This is vital not only for the preservation of animal life generally, but for the future existence of man himself—a point that seems to escape many people.
