May got more glorious .....

Somewhere between 11am yesterday and Noon today, eggs were laid in the nest.

At least two - I was so stunned when I saw them, I quickly shut the box.  There could be more.  She will apparently deliver one egg a day until she's finished (probably not more than 4) and will then begin incubation.

Incubation takes about two weeks.  Then its about three weeks before the little ones make their way into the world.

Thankfully, I will be back from vacation before they leave the nest.  Mom and dad continue feeding for 30 days, so we will have many bluebirds for the month of July. 

So, my glory for July is guaranteed.
