Monday Mischief: We’ve Got Bluebirds

My photo (sorry for the blur)

Internet photo of male and female Eastern Bluebirds

We are blessed to have Eastern Bluebirds spending a great deal of time in the yard this year. It is probably because V has discovered that they love mealworms and is mixing them into the feeders. We have waited years for Bluebirds. V even put a Bluebird house, perfectly positioned on the big maple out front, so that we can watch it when doing dishes. Last year a male came and checked it out but never moved it. I wonder if he will try it again this year?

The Eastern Bluebird is a small thrush with a big rounded head, large eyes, plump body, and alert posture. The winds are long, but the tail and legs are fairly short. The bill is short and straight.  – All about

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Wonderful Wednesday: No Bluebird But…

I was looking out the kitchen window, checking on the Bluebird box, and instead of a Bluebird, I had an unexpected visitor: a Pileated Woodpecker.

It doesn’t seem like anyone has wanted to move into the Bluebird box this season, but I will absolutely take a friendly Woodpecker sighting any day.

Wordless Wednesday: Baby Bluebirds



The Bluebird family nested in the box by the pool.  There were 2 chicks.  They keep falling out of the box, or jumping.  I found one drowned in the pool. The other I found had hoped across the yard and was trying to get in the garage door.  Dad was sitting on the top of the garage yelling.  It does not seem like the baby can fly yet.  We put him back in the box again (this is the second time) because we did not want the dogs to eat him.  We hope he can fly soon.

Happy Wednesday!
