Updated

There has been lots of activity...Pappa flying away to find food.

Mom fills them up while he is out.


Reaching that little mouth in the back.


I think I know where my love for cobalt blue comes from.




The original Blue Angel.

Fly away for more food.

I still only count four.

Poppa Keeps Watch

I was out with the goats and chickens and ran over very carefully to try to get a shot with my phone,

Nothing is going to happen to those eggs on his watch.

They Just Keep Adding More

 I look forward to this miracle every spring.  I have been watching a pair of bluebirds fly around the yard, check out the bluebird boxes and then only to fly away.  I was losing hope.

April 19th I was so glad to see these two eggs!

Mw being nosey rosy...I looked in again the same day and found they had added one more.  It was late and the sun had already gone down I guess that is why the color is so much different with a flash.

Then today when things calmed down and I was able to spend a little me time in the backyard I found there are four eggs now.

EGG UPDATE:
as of Friday, April 21...there are five eggs.

An Empty Nest

Watching mom and dad start to build their nest.  Looking forward to watching for eggs and then seeing those little faces that peek out of the hole.

Shouldn't be too much longer!

Still A Mystery

WThis is a shot of the little bird that keeps returning to the nest int he fern on the front porch.  Some think it might be a Vireo.  Wondering if it is?

I found three perfectly shaped eggs while watering last week.  It is really hard to water the fern now.  I am extra careful to not pour water into the nest.
