Why I Can't Wait 'Til Spring!




I have always loved birds. But--it was this past spring/summer that I really became 'addicted' to watching them. Once I realized that a Mama and Daddy Bluebird were growing a little family in the nest box in my yard, well----I found myself watching and watching and watching.. They are the most beautiful birds I have ever seen.. They even kept a 'clean' nest.. AND--their older fledglings also helped feed the babies. It was amazing to watch!!!! I hope they come back this year!!! I am anxiously waiting. Don't you love that picture above of the hungry babies??



Mama stops by to feed the babies.



Daddy helps also!!! Isn't he gorgeous????



Welcome to the big-ole-world, Babies!!! (Now you see why I'm ready for Spring?)
