TODAY'S WORD IS
Oh is mom happy about today's word...
we'd like to show you our
Eastern Bluebird House and Nest(ing) cup
The male bluebird builds the nest in the cup.
We don't know if he would build w/o it...
because we always use the cups.
The bluebird house is made with a side opening, shown below, so nosy humans can peep in there to check the nest for eggs.
Once the eggs are hatched MOM NEVER opens
the side door.
Once many years ago mom opened the side to check for eggs...
lo and behold the Mrs. BB was in the house..when mom open the side door Mrs. BB almost flew into mom's hair.....SO now
before Mom opens the side door she knocks first. If Mrs. BB
is there she flies out the front hole. Usually we get at least one or two broods of baby BB in the spring! And March is the month Mr. BB starts looking for the perfect real estate for Mrs. BB.
She can be a little picky. We have full bird feeders and BB pellets
near by,a bird bath, and shrubs close by so she can get a break from the baby BB but keep an eye on the house.
