Getting brighter feathers and flying more and more, father is still perched on the dish watching over the young ones.
They are so cute, a little male and female hop along the logs while father watches from the dish on our farm lawn.
The Bluebirds returned for Thanks giving, I don’t know why but they keep coming back about every two weeks!
Two years ago my friend bob, brought me back this awesome Bluebird house from Florida. He has the same one and they love it. So I put up mine with hight expectations … they didn’t even look at it!… two years of moving it around the property and with in 24 hours at this spot, they were all over it! If you don’t have Bluebirds, keep moving the boxes until they prove of the location. This year “we” raised 12 chicks in our yard 🙂
Your right, I can’t own Bluebirds… but I can put a Bluebird house outside my bathroom window where I enjoy watching this little family from the day they arrive. I’m waiting for fledglings to appear any day now, mom and dad are busy feeding the chicks. They love the big old Northern Spy apple tree to perch in before entering their house. They flitter through the air and hard to catch in flight, I didn’t get a decent shot so had some fun putting together a montage so you can see how they wobble through the air.
I put up a Blue Bird box and in minutes we had a pair of Blue Birds, this one is in the apple tree right outside my bedroom window.
