This is the view from my office window. I love watching the birds in the morning. They seem to be very active in the early morning and then slow down about 11am. Maybe it is nesting time. I don’t know but it suddenly gets quiet.

The bluebird box in the picture is probably about 7 years old and has raised several families. I have never witnessed the launch of the babies (mainly because I am too impatient) but after the launch I know they are gone because they sit close by in the trees for a few days.

Our house is up for sale now and this bluebird box will go with us when we move. It’s not that I couldn’t get another but I just enjoy knowing that this box has been at two homes with us and will go to the next and continue raising more families.

Here’s a another photo I took later in the afternoon of the male. He is sooooo beautiful!

This is actually a half-way decent picture. This is not normal for me! 🙂

I hope you enjoy my pictures as much as I enjoy taking them. If you do, send me some love in the form of a comment!

Thanks for looking!
