As many of you know, as soon as our bluebirds arrived, we immediately ordered and hung a couple of bluebird houses. And although the bluebirds have been checking out the houses...
... they may have waited a wee bit too long to stake claim to them! At least this house.
This scene unfolded mere minutes ago. Mr. and Mrs. Sparrow seem like very serious contenders as they discuss the pros and cons of this new home.
Mr. Sparrow checked out the neighborhood (tree) while Mrs. Sparrow sat firmly on the roof lest some other birds come along looking for a new house.
Looks like I've been spotted!
Apparently I didn't scare them off because they're now peeking inside.
Well, they've now both inspected the inside and Mrs. Sparrow is taking one last look at the view from the front door before they make their final decision.
It looks like it's a done deal. Mrs. Sparrow just dropped some 'bedding' inside the front door and I see that Mr. Sparrow has some in his beak as well.
Ahhhh, spring is definitely in the air (although you'd never know it by the temps!)
"Honey, I'm home!"
Sorry, my bluebirds. There's still one more house mounted in the yard and one more waiting to be mounted. Don't forget, the early bird gets the (meal)worm and the house!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
