What’s Up?

Spring is the busiest season for avians in my backyard. There are various reasons for that, being the main one: Find a mate and procreate. I have a self proclaim duty to provide the facilities for the birds to accomplish their main reason in life.

I have installed the restored birdhouse and it’s already available to any birds. Birds are inspecting it as a potential home.

This is a report as a storyboard for a pair of Eastern Bluebirds ( A new pair, the previous couple was shunned by other birds in the neighborhood).
