Eastern Bluebird 040416a copy

This is by no means a ground breaking image. Not the place I would have hoped the Male Eastern Bluebird would land for a portrait, but perfect in it’s own sense. Why, you ask? If you look in his mouth you will see a very tiny spider. Mom had a tiny spider just before this. They made a couple of quick trips to the nestbox and back out to hunt. What does that mean? We have newly hatched Eastern Bluebirds in the yard! This is very early for the first brood and it may mean we get 3 broods this year. We just have to do our part and keep mealworms out there and make sure the nestbox stays safe.
