I saw this Lensball on FB and mentioned to Mark that it might be fun to try.  Little did I know that way back in Feb he ordered one.
Pretty interesting and there is a definite learning curve, especially for someone with a little OCD.

I took a short walk around the yard this afternoon looking for unusual things.  These are three things that I found.

the tiniest bird feather I have ever seen.

Way down in the all camoed up is a toad.

I almost stepped on this broken white eggshell.

I saw this beauty having trouble flying so I waited patiently for it to land.  In the first shot, you can see that there seems to be something stuck on its wing.  I tried my best to remove it but no luck.

I went out to check on the bluebird boxes and found this interesting nest.

Does anyone have a clue what kind of bird makes this kind of nest?

I had been seeing a pair of bluebirds flying around in the backyard. Then one night
when I was playing with the boys I say one go in the bluebird box. Thought I would give them the night and check out the box the next morning.

Sure enough...5 beautiful bluebird eggs.

Checked the next day...still five eggs.

I think I waited for about 2 weeks, maybe a few days more.  Checked again and found bluebird babies.

Hungry little babies.

Checked the next day.

Then I started counting little bluebird heads.

Then we left for a week on vacation.

One of the first things I did was check on by bluebird babies.  They have feathers now.  And I see a little blue on them.  So now I patiently wait for them to stick their little heads out the hole.  Don't want them to fall out of the nest when I open the door to the box.  Grow beautiful little blue babies, grow.
