The Bluebirds have been busy watching their nests.
Both of the Bluebird boxes in the woodland garden have residents in them now.
Wednesday my daughter and I walked along the upper trail from Old Mans Cave to Rose Lake.
Bluets were spotted all along the upper trail.
This week three Brown-Headed Cowbirds dropped by to eat from the birdfeeders.
This species is much reviled, as it is a parasitic and lays eggs in other birds’ nests. The baby Cowbirds normally outcompete the hosts species young and thus the cowbirds have a determined affect on the songbirds.
