Back in February I posted Making a Bluebird House about an easy project I found online on how to build a bluebird box. After assembling and setting out the birdhouse, a family of Eastern Bluebirds were moving in the very next day.
Throughout the months I watched the couple come and go, and I knew that a larger family would soon emerge.
The male bird fed the family daily, and he was vigilant in watching over the new hatchlings. The sound of the chicks reverberated as he arrived with food.
The chirping stopped one day, and the family was gone. I was not sure what had happened for almost two weeks, but I finally got to see the now growing new arrivals.
They were so much fun to watch as he taught them to search for food while keeping them fed at the same time. Now the female is back on the nest, and they are starting all over again.
