About four years ago my Hubby put up a Blue Bird box in our yard. With much anticipation, we watched n waited for a pair of Blue Birds to take up residence. Two years in a row, in early spring, we would get some visits from Blue Birds but the Sparrows would chase them away and take over. They would nest n raise their brood, one year the same pair had two broods. While I enjoyed watching them in action and took lots of pictures of the fledglings, I was disappointed that it wasn't my favorite...the Eastern Blue Bird. Last spring/summer, not one bird took up residence! WELL...this is the magic year!!! WE now have a pair of Blue Birds nesting n hopefully will be seeing babies in about 14 days. Needless to say...Jer and I are thrilled!!!
Sorry for the poor quality of these pics...I was zoomed all the way. Stay tuned for more when the
kids arrive! I am going to borrow my daughters lens..it zooms out farther.
