Hot drama

I will just say it…it is hot! Warning the following may be hard to see or not.

Pointing the IR thermometer at our driveway. Yikes! At the moment I took this reading the air temperature was 104.9F at around 3:30pm! Heat index was 121.3F. I googled it and it said 158F is needed to fry an egg to become firm. Maybe less for humans?
On the outside of Bewick’s Wren nest box and approximately 10-12 inches from the surface. Yesterday there were still nestlings inside.

Press tightly against the entry hole.
Stepping back to June 1st, the lovely couple had six eggs when I discovered them. The good parents were hoping for the best for their young family in the nest lined with feathers.
Soon the little ones hatched except for one. ๐Ÿ™

There still were five beautiful Bewick’s Wren nestlings on June 23rd!

Yesterday when I peeked in only four remained. The biggest one must have fledged. Yeah!
This afternoon I checked in on them. All gone except for the infertile egg.

And probably not a moment too soon. Pointed directly on the nest, it was 111.2F! Happy ending! ๐Ÿ™‚
