Oh, oh, oh…..forgot to add. Had a male and female bluebird in the yard today! Gosh I hope they stay around. They were out back, then out front, then at the neighbors, then back in our yard and then they flew down towards the park. Didn’t see them again after that. They were over by a pair of boxes (30 feet apart from each other) on the east of our house, pretty much the best bluebird area in the yard. Tree Swallows have taken one and are defending both. Chickadees have shown interest in the other but get chased away by the TRES. I went out to look in the one this afternoon and the Chickadees were scolding me so I do think they want that box. So, I got my trap box out, took that box off the fence post and put my extra Xbox on the post (it is baffled) and put that out 25 feet from the one the TRES want. That way just in case the Blues come back and the Dees want the one, the TRES the other, there is still an extra box over there. Hoping they will come back or at least nest down by the park.
