Baby Bluebirds Have Arrived

In April, I posted about a couple of Eastern bluebirds checking out my birdhouse. We watched them build a nest and waited with anticipation for the sound of tiny peeps as baby bluebirds popped out of their eggs. However, after a couple of weeks, it seemed as if the couple decided they weren’t going to stay. Instead of carrying nesting material to the birdhouse, we watched them carry material from the birdhouse. And then, they were gone. Weeks went by with no activity. We didn’t even see a bluebird, male or female. The birdhouse sat empty, rejected, its entrance a gaping “oh” of sadness. But about three or four weeks ago, that changed!
