The Bluebirds are back!

We put up a new nesting box for the Bluebirds this year. Last years box had to have a mid season roof repair. There’s always a feeling of “I wonder if they’ll come to a new box”, but it took about an hour after it was up and here they came. One interesting side note about the bluebirds…….we discovered they were roosting in the barn swallow nests under the porch eave since at least February. It could be earlier than that, but we hadn’t noticed until then. Every night they’d show up as soon as it got dark. There were three of them. Two in one nest and one in the other.

We’re thrilled to see them working on a new nest and I’ll keep you posted on their progress all the way through the fledging.

The happy couple.
