My season has begun. The female blue is building the nest. I noticed activity yesterday and a lot of activity this morning. Took the photo around noon. I only saw the male once. But mama is doing a great job. It looks like the nest should be finished in a day or so.
David: Glad your mama BB has decided to start a nest. Mine are still going from box to box, but I did see a piece of dried grass in one of them last night and if it isn’t a piece that was just stuck to their feet or feathers, nest building might start soon. We are going to get pretty chilly again for a few days so that may halt any progress for a while. I agree strange your female would go to the neighbors yard for dried grass when it is so close by, but they do, do some very strange things.
David, Bluebird season is here too. Your nest is further along than mine, but at least they have a start. I can’t post pictures, I have no idea how, but I enjoy seeing the ones that are posted.
