And then it began...Spring nesting behavior. Finally she sat on the fence we have up around the Deutzia and just watched while basking in the sun. He gathered and gathered, flying back and forth, picking up dried pine needles and fine grass. Then they worked together stuffing the old box.
We have four bluebird boxes on the perimeter of our yard. This one faces East and gets the sun from the Southwest and West, while the remaining three boxes are located with their backs to the North and get all the sun they need from the South.
When she was done for the afternoon, she returned to her little respite and let the sun beat on her back. After all, tomorrow is another day.
