Box 1. A bluebird flew out. Four bluebird eggs (see photo). Also hundreds of tiny ants in the nest. (Two weeks ago there was an empty nest with some feathers. So bluebirds have apparently usurped tree swallows -unusual!

Box 6. Bluebirds have fledged leaving two mid-sized corpses. (Two weeks ago there were four nestlings.)
Box 9. Tree Swallow perched on box and several Tree Swallows flying around near the box. Tree Swallow on the nest with at least three eggs, so box quickly closed.
