We have spent a lot of time this Spring sitting on our porch and watching the birds. We have been particularly interested to see if the bluebirds would, once again, make their home with us.

We have spotted a pair of bluebirds perched in our trees, occasionally swooping down for a tasty bug or so……This is a female….she is more brownish-blue/grey on her back and wings.

The male is more brightly colored……

We were thrilled to see this pair checking out the bluebird box. The male would sit on top of the house and just look around ……

Before flying off…..He repeated this a number of times….checking out the neighborhood, I think. ; )

Later, we saw the female land on the front of the house….and disappear inside!

Only to peak out from time to time……  I do believe that they have found themselves a home!

This is the bird box where, several years ago, we watched a pair of bluebirds raise a clutch of young birds and the fledglings ‘flew the coupe’ as all of our children happened to be in town, and were able to watch from the porch. It is such fun to get to share these things…..If not in person, then by blog!
