They will probably fledge in the next day or two

May 19 - Pin feathers are very clear

May 23rd - Fully feathered, ready to go any day. This will be my last pic (of this clutch) as I do not want them to fledge prematurely.

Those pictures make my day. I've been unsuccessful opening up bluebird trails for years by me because of so many house sparrows. It is heart warming to see someone else able to go for it.
