Stuffed Blue Bird Box

As you can see, they’ve been busy. Again… !

The bluebirds have laid a late winter clutch of eggs despite it is crowded inside messy nests from previous clutches.

So already they are busy duplicating themselves. I’m embarrassed for them most of the year excepting cold, wet weather, when they are definitely less inclined for romance.

The weather’s been rather pleasant so… why not? It’s icy cold but no matter. I guess they keep themselves warm in that box.

And there’s more bluebirds everywhere.
Now that’s a lovely thing.

and the eye is turned through contact with her.

When we first moved up here 25 years ago, there were none!
Now it is rare to glance out a window that I don’t see two! Later in the fountain, we might see half a dozen!

We must be doing something right! Maybe the Bird Research Dept. from Sonoma State University will see this post. It  was they who first told me the Western Blue Birds had disappeared from Sonoma Mountains.

I decided to try to do something about that…
{I have western blue bird nest boxes all over the place… they REALLY work!}

Next I want to try owl boxes!

Screech Owl

 

Tho they have a perfectly good barn, they are very territorial. That means there aren’t many in it.
And there aren’t many barns anymore.

We could use more owls on the ranch to help control rodents.

And I love that lovely haunting sound only owls can make as they call to each other.

Enjoy the day as these blue birds do, a moment at a time ~
Being in each moment as it comes to you.
And I shall do the same~

    They are so beautiful. I never lived anywhere that had actual bluebirds! Blue jays, sure! So glad you get their joy. Good luck with the owls!

      Hi Spidee….. it is fun to see them and, here, they stay. No migrating but then again why should they? It’s HOME! I still feel guilty I’m not feeding mealies anymore but they got soooo fat, they could only squeeze into their home. Haha, funny birds! xxx

      As for my great owl idea, their box needs to be up a 20′ pole so not sure about that yet. I’m working on farmer! 😊

    Ah yes! Such wonderful bluebirds are rare for me too. I’ve never seen a live one so it’s great to be able to see them here. Isn’t it a shame that so many barns have disappeared? They were a everywhere in my childhood.. especially the ones the cows came home to just over the hill from our house.

      Hello my dear with apologies for absence here. Health issues are laying me low. 😮 yes on vanishing barns. They are falling over in the fields if not knocked over to make way for something else. Yes, I miss many things of late… sigh…
