Wordless Wednesday...A Good Landlord
Our bluebird babies fledged on Saturday and while we are happy that they seem healthy enough to fly the coop, we miss being a part of their nesting process.
Larry and I took this responsibility seriously going so far as to purchase a small fridge for the garage just to hold live mealworms. Yes...we did that!
And as temps rose into the high 90’s, even reaching over 100 degrees in the afternoon, Larry tried to see if he could help to get the internal birdhouse temperatures lowered.
He made a custom insulated cover for the birdhouse, then mounted his expensive umbrella over the birdhouse. As temperatures rose, he placed a reflective covering that he’d made for the umbrella when he took it on his wilderness kayaking trip.
Then all we could do was cross our fingers and hope for the best. If you look at one of the pictures, you can see one of the baby bluebirds peeking out!
How do you like Larry's hazmat suit??
