Bluebird Wings

This is certainly not the best photo, but it was a thrill to watch the male bluebird feeding the two fledglings. Charles built this birdhouse from an old barn door and set it on the deck planning to give it away. Immediately, we noticed a pair of bluebirds checking it out to see if it was suitable for a nest. The pair seemed to like the old barn door birdhouse and moved in. Charles secured the birdhouse to the deck and we watched the pair as they built their nest and hatched their fledglings. As the fledglings grew, we noticed that the female bluebird wasn't around the nest and that the male bluebird was doing all of the feeding. The two little bluebirds soon left the nest under the care and guidance of the male bluebird.


A few weeks later, another pair of bluebirds "refreshed" the nest and now they are feeding four fledglings! We have had lots of fun watching the bluebirds!!
