Here’s another shot of the female, showing her tail and wing feathers. Bluebirds will be picking out their nesting sites soon. Last spring, I found a pair nesting in a hole in a tree at a nearby conservation area. Most eastern bluebirds these days nest in manmade boxes.
Here’s one of the females perched on a stick in my container garden. I think that stick helped to support a “volunteer” sunflower that grew from a seed that the birds (and squirrels, chipmunks, raccoons and whatever else shows up at night) somehow missed. Have a great weekend everybody!
