The bluebirds saga

March 7, 2011

Last year in March, a bluebird couple inspected our birdhouse. Obviously it wasn’t up to their standards because they didn’t come back. Soon after that, a less pretentious chickadee couple moved in and after a few weeks their three little chicks hatched.

You can see the pictures here.

This year, another bluebird couple has been checking our birdhouse and its neighborhood. Good food and water close by with a 24 hour security fence around the backyard. Maybe not the kind of luxury home to which they were accustomed but a fine house just the same.

They have been in and out several times during the day. The male perches on the roof and looks around, his head turning like a periscope, and the female goes inside to look around. But they still look undecided.

A chickadee couple has also been eyeing the house. It is too soon to know who is going to nest in our birdhouse but it will be interesting to see who will make it their home.
