3.28.14 - Home - Bird Nerd Moment
My yard - Yarmouth MA
Home inspections have begun!  Many birds have found their mate for the season, now...time for house hunting!   The nest boxes that our kids painted a few years ago are not the best kind to have because they cannot be cleaned out at the end of each breeding season (typically late fall, early winter).  Lucky for us, some birds are OK with that, I just hope they do well if they decide that these are their homes of choice.   I had to grab my camera when I noticed Eastern Bluebirds checking out our nest boxes for the first time!  The photos below are not great because I took them through the glass in our back door.  I was concerned that if I opened the door for better focus, the birds would take off and I'd lose the chance to catch them in action.  Forgive the blurry-ness.  It just makes me happy to have these birds in our yard!

Things are slowly starting to look, feel and even smell, like spring!
Happy  Birding!
