I will not write about the bluebirds in my next post. I’ll share something with a little more depth, more substance. Less obsession.
Until then, though, we won’t even consider this a real post. It’s just a bonus weekend update. Because there’s news surrounding the bluebirds’ consideration of the new nest box, and I just have to share.
He’s been around a lot. Flying in. Flying out. Gazing with interest from the pretty scrollwork bench not four feet away.
She–not so much. One or two visits, none convincing in the least.
Who can blame her? It’s been a long Spring, what with two failed nests and the loss of five precious babies, their eyes not even opened yet.
Still he remains optimistic, even spreading a little straw in the bottom of the box, just to see how it feels.
There has been a lot of investigation. Some discussion.
And a whole lot of excitement on the part of Big Daddy.
I love him.
I’d love to send you an email when there’s a new post on The Daily Grace! Just leave your email here.
I can hardly take my eyes off them. As you know, it’s so fascinating to watch the interaction between the male and female. There is so much going on!
Such a lovely couple! Prayers that the Snakes and the Hawks, and others, may be transferred to another location to make a living – at least for the next few months. Thanks for the post!
I agree, Joretta and thank you for the prayers. I’ve seen the hawk sit on top of the new box twice. So there’s a NEW worry!
Your posts about the birds make me happy…please don’t stop!
Oh, thank you, Betsy! They are so fascinating–I am happy they make you happy!
Cathy I want at least 1 obsessed post about the newly purchased home weekly. She is tired and fussy, he ever the optimist. I think they love you too.
Thank you, Rosie. I believe you and I are kindred spirits!
