No Bluebirds Yet
The bluebird house sits empty. Last year by this time there was a nest and 6 eggs. They have come every year since I put up the house so I am hoping they are just late. Lots of other feathered friends around though. The orioles, titmice, thrashers and finches have all been very busy. Last week an old oriole nest fell out of my neighbor's tree. I found it laying on the driveway. It was an amazing creation made of pine needles, grasses. bits of lichen and moss and spider webs. As I write this , I am being serenaded by a multitude of different birdsongs - music to my ears.
