Last spring I had a post on this site featuring a pair of Eastern Bluebirds at Mather Meadow, a property of the Darien Land Trust. This weekend I paid a visit to the property again and, sure enough, the bluebirds are back. I checked quickly and noted four blue eggs in the house. It’s so good to see them nesting there year after year. It wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and determination of so many people at the Darien Land Trust. If the property (which is largely critical meadow property) would not have been protected, it surely would have been the site of several houses by now. Instead, it’s a beautiful meadow property. The bluebirds are only the most highly visible residents of the land. Countless species of birds, mammals, insects and plants also call Mather Meadow home.
Be sure to support your local land trust.
