It appears that this bluebird pair is about to set up housekeeping in my new little birdhouse, just outside our kitchen window. Looks like Papa is off to work and Mama is waving goodbye.
Photographed through double-glazed windows.

    LOL @ Regenia......Don, I love your series on your new neighbors.........You DO know that they WILL tolerate you peeking inside their nest after the eggs are laid.......I read up on them....they will lay an egg a day until they have 3 or 4 of them.......then just 17 days or so they will hatch.........can't wait to see some shots of the little ones :~)

    You are sure to enjoy watching them for a few months, Don. They will probably nest more than once. Last year and the year before ours nested 3 times in the same box. This year they are still checking the houses out once in awhile. We have had two flocks of rather aggressive migrating birds move into the are temporarily. Both are now gone, so hopefully the bluebirds will nest again this year.
