The birds (bluebirds and wrens mostly) are checking out the bird houses that have been distributed throughout the yard. They have a nice selection and seem to be taking their time. Saw this handsome dad-to-be outside my bedroom window looking into the Williamsburg birdhouse that we mounted beneath the deck. I hope they move in, because this will be a nice place for me to watch them raising a family.
It does appears that he is checking out absolutely every bird house and every tree hole for yards around!
