Spring Real Estate Deals

Things are getting busy. Citrus trees have been moved to the outdoors and the Yellow Rump has discovered them and is helping remove the fungus flies that "blossomed" into crowds of tiny black dots all over my windows.


Not exactly a feast out here!


Over Christmas there was the gift of a bluebird house that attaches to a window---an experiment where I have taped some black construction paper on the inside---that the Blue Birds are now checking out in the daytime.  They chatter for hours on end.


"I tell you, Margaret, they are NOT leaving!"

They are confused by the other interested shoppers (reflections of themselves) and they are leaving calling cards all over my windowsills!!


The male is in his mating beauty.

I have come to the conclusion that house shopping is as difficult and stressful for birds as it is for people!

I've put out a bird feeder but don't get the same level of enthusiasm from the birds as you do!

Yes, and all sorts of ugly things can happen to a new home too.

Well, i hope they decide to stay in spite of the other interested parties.

It's more complicated for birds as sex is involved as well as choosing a house.

How wonderful that you can watch bluebirds up close and personal.
