Wow Bluebirds!

After no nesting bluebirds for several years we have them (yeah!) and are they going to town. Here's the male presenting a tasty morsel to the female. This is "mate-feeding" an essential part of bluebird courtship and pair-bonding.

Congrats on the bluebirds! I've had great success with blue birds myself this spring.

Awesome picture!!!
Haven't had any bluebirds here! Hung a house this spring but I think it's too high up, around 5-6 feet. I'm hoping if I lower it I'll have better luck in the years to follow.
