Since spring seems to be upon us, my favorite harbingers have arrived: the eastern bluebirds.
There are 3 bluebird boxes in the yard, and every year we have a pair of bluebirds occupy one of them. They usually have between 3 and 5 babies.
This week our bluebirds have returned and they're outside scoping out the nest boxes.
This is a male:
The male is on the left, the female is on the right.
And this is the box they are currently laying claim to.
(although, I photographed this a few weeks ago when there was still snow on the ground...)
Hopefully, they'll stick around and build a nest and have some babies.
I have a lot of bluebird items in my shop: sarahkdesigns I invite you to check them out!
