There’s an effort by a group in our neighborhood to help increase the number of bluebirds in our area. We’ve spotted them on rare occasions over the years, so 2 years ago we put up a house to attract them, which they’ve pointedly ignored both years, This year, I’m happy to say, it looks like they are nesting in our yard. Not in the house we bought for them, of course, but in holes drilled by a woodpecker in an old birch tree in our front yard.
Beautiful little guy, isn’t he?
Happy spring, everyone!
