They’re back…

Can you guess who by the color of the eggs?

The bluebirds —

A sure sign of spring.

I never tire of seeing that streak of blue flash through the sky. It is an immediate response of joy, of hope that spring is not far off. Usually I see the male first, scoping out the nesting boxes, and a couple of days later the female shows up. This year I saw them both today. I get into action and put out live mealworms for them to eat. Not a lot of live insects outside yet.

Take a look at these beauts as they eagerly choose just the right box to raise their brood.

Eyes open, everyone. So much is happening this time of year… right in your backyard.

Pandemic: We are all in this together. As Americans we have a responsibility to band together and take care of ourselves, each other, and our country. Stay inside, take a walk outside at a safe distance from others, feel the sun on your face. Follow the rules — no one is immune. Stay safe!
