March is a month of transition, wind and taxes. Eventually spring will triumph over winter and the March winds will subside. The taxes will linger on. When I posted a few days ago the reddirt hill was covered in snow and the bluebirds were nowhere to be seen. Warm spring-like afternoons have replaced the snow and north wind. And the bluebirds have returned with a renewed interest in each other and their nestbox.
Daddy is much more protective of the back yard than just a couple of weeks ago and Mama is thinking about nesting. Yesterday she brought a few blades of grass into the box. I suspect this will be a false attempt based on years past. Time will tell, I’m not in charge of the bluebirds’ schedule. Robin Williams said Spring is Nature’s way of saying “Let’s party!” And the party has begun.
