Eastern Blue Birds nesting in my back yard! The scientific name is Sialia sialis. This is pretty awesome because these Blue Birds are endangered.

Recorded with the Nikon D3200

Edited in Adobe Premiere Elements 10

Mr. & Mrs. Bluebird laid five eggs. They fed them and groomed them. Then the babies fledged. Watch it happen over the course of 16 days, from the time the babies hatched til they flew the coop.
