July Bluebirds Babies

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.

I Just Love Spring!

I was rehanging the ferns on t he front porch and found this.  Look closely into the makings of the nest...old carpet fibers and an old cigarette butt.

Mr. John loves to create things.   This is part of his gnome home village.  If you look closely, you can see a birds nest in the fork of the tree.

I see three beaks.

 I see four heads...there may be more.

I see feathers, too.

Whoa!

We have been cleaning out the hot tub.  I'm chatting away and opening the lids at the same time and this little creature jumped up and scared the willies out of me.
