Spring 2020 – Our Bluebirds are Parents!

I’ve been keeping an eye on the bluebird house. If you’ve caught my earlier posts, you will know that we have a bluebird house that attracts families each spring. This spring is no exception. Today, I spotted the cutest little baby bluebird poking it’s head out the hole.

My son loaned me his tri-pod and I set my camera-up and took more than a few baby pictures and videos. I hope you will enjoy looking at a few of my favorite bluebird baby pictures… Happy Spring!

Spring has Arrived and the Bluebirds are Back!

Ah what a glorious day it is! The kids and I just got back from a walk and my son noticed a bluebird on the birdhouse. Looks like another family is moving in. My husband confirmed this is indeed the case, as the birdhouse door was ajar and a nest was inside. As not to disturb the nest, but to keep the door shut, he made a quick fix with some twine. I can not wait to meet the next generation of bluebirds!

The flowers are also thriving in the yard. Such beautiful colors right now. My favorite time of year for our front yard plants as everything is blooming, budding, and brilliant.

The orange and lemon trees are full of fruit. That means plenty of orange juice and fresh lemon pies! I picked 25 oranges and it does not look like I touched the tree!

Happy Spring!

Baby Bluebirds Have Arrived

It is mid July and we have spotted our first glimpse of our newest baby bluebird. The parents have been nesting for a while so we have been waiting for this day. Now that the day has come we could not be more thrilled!

Baby Bluebird

We have had baby Western Bluebirds (Sialia mexicana) now for the past few years. Ever since my husband made and gifted me a bluebird house, the birds have come to make their nest and raise their babies. Both the male and female bird help to prepare the nest and take care of the young.

It is such a treat to watch the activities of this newly formed family. The parents are very attentive to their babies and can be seen flying to and from the nest throughout the day with food for their young. Welcome Bluebird family!
