In a cozy nest of grass a female bluebird lays her eggs, blue as the summer sky. When they hatch, there are four tiny chicks to feed. The parent birds hunt all day for tasty insects to give their hungry brood.

The chicks grow quickly, and within a few weeks they have enough feathers to learn to fly. At first their wings are shaky and unsure, but soon the fledglings are fast enough to catch their own meals.

The nearly grown chicks help their parents raise a new brood of hungry babies—before the cold winter drives the family south.
