WHITE BLUEBIRD EGGS!


I presently have an incubating female on a clutch of 3 white eggs.  4-5% of bluebirds will lay white eggs–generally just as fertile and healthy as blue eggs.  See the Sialis.org site here for more information on why a bluebird will lay white eggs:   http://www.sialis.org/whiteeggs.htm

First white eggs I've seen since I started bluebirding in 2006. Do check out the explanation why this happens on the Sialis.org website (thanks, Bet!)
