Wordless Wednesday…Anticipation Rewarded


Last Saturday in my post I wrote that Larry and I have been eagerly waiting for Spring nesting season.


Our wait has been rewarded. Our most productive bluebird box has 5 eggs in it!  We didn’t expect anything because we’d not noticed any bluebirds nearby. When we checked, not only was there a nest but 5 beautiful blue eggs!!!

However, that’s not all!!!   One of our other boxes out at Kickerillo and our bluebird box in our backyard both have move-in ready nests!!!


Having a front-row seat to the marvels of Mother Nature brings joy that you can’t buy in any store!!!

WOW Kathy Streib, I LOVE this! I can just imagine how happy you were to find these blue eggs.

Beth Atalay we are excited. Bluebirds became endangered in the late 1970s. Thankfully people began setting out bluebird boxes for them to nest in and now their population has increased.

Hello Kathy - Kickerillo seems to be an active bluebird market as prospective tenants flock to find an appropriate nest.  Eggciting news.

Hi Michael Jacobs this is just my opinion but I think the fard freeze and snow we had in 2021 took a toll on all of the wildlife. Before the freeze, we had nests in all of the 4 boxes we monitored. I hope this year is more productive.

Spring is starting, I noticed on our walk the other day with Jackie and Annie that the woods seemed to have a green sheen to them indicating new growth is happening.
