What a difference a week makes

yarbirds 006March 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. yarbirds 009 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.

      Juliana is a neighbor and loves bluebirds. How many years has it been since we put that box up in your back yard? Unfortunately, no bluebirds have used it. You’d think as many babies as we pump out on this hill, one would have found your box. Juliana, I wish you bluebirds.
