But now it's monday - the start of a brand new week - a clean slate. I was watching our 2 families of birds build their nests today, one of my favorite parts of spring. We've always had Bluebirds in the Bluebird house but never a family in this house.
My husband built this birdhouse and it's great fun to finally see a family settle there. If you look hard, you'll see one flying out of the picture and one perched on the lower roof, ready to enter the house. They really didn't like me invading their space.
They were dive-bombing me as I tried to get close for pictures.
Our Bluebird house which is very weathered has great appeal for Bluebirds. We've had 3 families in the 2 seasons it's been up. Our neighbor made this and gave it to us as a housewarming present. We love it and so do the birds.
