Fingers Crossed…

 

Last week Larry and I were watching our backyard guests and noticed that Mr. and Mrs. Bluebird were making quite a few trips to the birdhouse. They do this throughout the year...one goes in and comes out and then another one will as well.

We thought it might be a way of marking their territory for the other bird guests we have.

But then we noticed that Mrs. Bluebird was carrying in bits of pine straw. Larry let the door down and peeked in!

 

 

Look what we found when Larry checked on the box!  

 

We are so excited!!

 

Here are some of our previous guests...

Hopefully you will get a nice new bird to chirp for you. I love watching nature form around me.

How cool, Kathy.  I wish we had Blue Birds here.  We have Blue Jays, although I haven't seen as many lately.

Nina Hollander you will definitely see updates!!!

Brian England we are very excited and a little concerned because it is still winter. I have to have faith that they know what they're doing. 

Wayne Martin we wonder if they are the original bluebirds or their offspring.

Grant Schneider I think it depends on the bird species. Bluebirds are used to being checked on. When the eggs are laid, we check to make sure that everything is ok as well. 

Kat Palmiotti I hope that this isn't a false alarm!!!

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD We are considering the hummingbird feeder warmer that you wrote about!!!  On the coldest day, that little hummer was there almost all day. 

Sharon Lee I was hoping you'd see this because I know how much you love bluebirds.

Carol Williams and we love it!!!!!

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS we have a total of 5 active nests during the season so last year there were a lot of new baby bluebirds. 

Hannah Williams I have to have space...so important to me. I don't care how big or small the house is but I need space.

Anna Banana Kruchten CRS CRB, Phoenix Broker When I was out today, I saw a female bluebird with nest material at the door of the house. 

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty same here. Sometimes I sit under the tree and listen to the birds.

George Souto I forget how long it takes but we'll keep checking.
