That Time of Year

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!

Isn't he gorgeous, Tabor? I love love love the Eastern Bluebirds.. BUT--I have a strange thing going on in my yard: 2 males fighting over 1 female.... Don't think she's chosen one of them yet --but they are both around her constantly!!!! ha
Hugs,
Betsy

Aren't they just the most beautiful blue, and such sweet birds---I love to hear them chattering, along with the wrens and Tree Sparrows. :) I have a couple more boxes that need to be mounted on posts...HAD to invest in some new condo rental property. :D

I have one building a nest in the same house as last year. Wish I could get an image. Your image is beautiful....

Such a brilliant blue! Our bluebirds have returned, too but I'll never get as close to a nesting bird as you will. I hope they nest in the birdhouse beneath your deck too, so I get to share them with you vicariously!

Wonderful and wonder full!

I know if he picks your birdhouse we will all benefit because you will provide a pictorial report of the bluebird family events.

oh, I do hope he moves in, too. We get them occasionally around here, but I've never been close enough for a picture or a good look.
