Any Day Now

I was sure that the Eastern Bluebirds would be done nesting by now, and that the presumptive third round of fledglings would be out in the big wide world before August 1st. But August is here, and the adult birds are still feeding their lot. I don't have conclusive intelligence as to what is going on in the nest box. Surely there is at least one hatchling, given the feeding behavior I'm seeing. But that is all I can be sure of. And I am too cautious and courteous to stick my nose into the box at this time. The suspense is killing me...when does the drama conclude? Any day now! any day now... someday...Argh!
