Yesterday afternoon I got a little scare...I saw a pile of feathers in the middle of the backyard. Upon further investigation I couldn't rule out the possibility it might be the female bluebird. I kept a close eye out for her the remainder of the day yesterday, but no signs. I also didn't see her this morning before heading into work. Fortunately, around 5 o'clock this evening she peaked her head out of the box. I decided to do a quick next check and discovered 6 eggs!! VERY excited!!

Did a quick nesting box check today and discovered a nest under construction.

Another Pair

This morning there was a pair of bluebirds hanging out on the desk this morning...they didn't seem to stick around long. Today was the first day I saw a couple of bluebirds in the neighborhood.

Perfect Picture!

We were out in the backyard this morning to clean up the old plants and sign of any bluebirds. We came back inside to fix lunch and while I was looking outside and saw the brilliant blue!

There was a male and female around the box - both looking in several times. There was another female just a little ways away in the scrub oak. This is the most activity I've had around the box...anxious to see if they stick around!

This morning I had the first bluebird of the season in the yard (at least that I've spotted). It tried sitting on top of the nesting box but the wind was blowing so hard this morning that he couldn't hang on.

I had to come back and edit this post right after publishing it...a bluebird flew into one of my windows right when I had clicked "Publish Post." It appeared to fly off okay.

One Male

Was on a short walk during my lunchtime today and I saw a single male bluebird up on the roof of a house near our school. Still haven't seen any other birds around our neighborhood...getting anxious!!

ADDITION: When I was leaving school today I ended up seeing two different pairs!

First Sighting

This evening I saw the first bluebird around our house. It flew in from the north and landed on the neighbor's roof. I didn't get a good view, or a photo, so I'm not sure if it was male or female.
