Good Eats

Thursday, April 21, 2011


I have been sitting in my new home, at the kitchen table by the window, my favorite spot in the house. I can see my feeders,birdbathes and one of my Bluebird houses. I have enjoyed watching the mom and pop bluebirds build the nest. They work well together, unlike some people. Then on March 15 I saw 3 eggs in the nest. such a pretty shade of blue, this was a first for me. Man it is exciting to know soon there will be baby birds. Did you know that pop bluebird even feeds mom while she sits on the nest? I now have babies !!!!!! If you can tell I get a little excited. I decided I was going to watch this all the way, till the fledging leave the nest.  Mom and pop share the feeding, won't be long now before they take their maiden flight. Wait I am getting ahead of myself, LOL  I noticed a few days ago that I have not been seeing mom come and go. Only papa, so I paid close attention, sure enough no mom. Now with mom out of the picture pop  has to work harder feeding them. He has been doing a great job too. Don't mean to leave you in suspense, but I had sprang my wrist bad and now it is stating to hurt, so I will post a few pics to help you see my story.Be back later to finish.
