Attract Nesting Eastern Bluebirds!

Yard happenings this morning in the dim morning light. Male Eastern Bluebird stands guard, while his mate builds the nest. They like resting on the fencepost before they enter the nest. Attract bluebirds with a good nest box and mealworms. They are such a joy to watch and the soft light brings out to blue of his back. Of the bluebird Henry David Thoreau wrote (March 1859) "Princes and magistrates are often styled serene, but what is their turbid serenity to that ethereal serenity which the bluebird embodies."
