We had Bluebirds for most of last spring/summer and they used one of our nest boxes for their second nesting. They are in the process of bringing nesting material into the same box they used last year. Oddly enough, some Carolina Chickadees already used that box this year for their first nesting!

Let me say first that I'm sorry for not responding to these comments earlier. No excuses; just a case of getting old I guess!

Beautiful:>))))
Thanks Gale! Do you get these guys down where you are?

Very nice captures Jim...
Thanks Paul!

I agree - very nice set Jim.
Thanks Frank. These guys are quite animated...

Beautiful both of them. The first one just amazes me. I love it.

Thanks for sharing

Beautiful shots of the Blue bird. I have tried attracting them to nesting boxes in my backyard for several months without any takers.
I have observed a couple of Blue birds looking around but still no Nester's.
I suppose what they say of the Real Estate market these days hold true for the Little Birdie housing as well. "It is a buyers market"

Thanks Darrell! Next time you see them in your yard, put our some meal worms. They'll be back... :wink:

You know Jim that is the very same thing here in N.Y. Last year we were loaded and so far this year I have not seen but a few blue birds while checking eagle nests and that was awhile ago.
The photos you did get are beautiful and the male has nice rich color. Nice catch.

Thanks Lou!

I read here that Bluebirds are one of the species hit hard by West Nile...
