Welcome to JOYFUL REFLECTIONS. My Header Picture for September 2021 shows a beautiful Sunset with the Shenandoah Valley below. My picture was taken from our room balcony while at Skyland Resort on 8/3/21.

Anyhow--to make a long story short, I started watching and taking pictures off and on all afternoon... (What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.) Here's what I saw!!!! Above is just a beautiful picture of a gorgeous little female Bluebird.... But---oh--if you could hear her squawking and screeching (ALL afternoon)... NO--it didn't get annoying --but I'm still not sure what she was so agitated about.
WELL---they finally flew away in different directions . She followed one of them --but soon came back by herself, still squawking.... Did her bellowing scare them away????? Hmmmmmmm...
The male is the one who is supposed to 'build' the nest.... BUT--if she doesn't have a male interested yet, the nest will just stay empty..... (AND--since I looked inside yesterday, I will tell you that as of right now, the nest is empty!!!)
STAY TUNED!!!! I'm sure I will have updates about my little Bluebirds.... (Last year, Mama Bluebird got upset because the Chickadees were trying to take "her" nest... BUT--I haven't seen any Chickadees this year so far at the nestbox.)
Hope you had as great a Wednesday afternoon as I had.... Of course, I didn't get any of my work done... Oh Well---tis life!!!!! ha ha... (Sorry that these are not my 'clearest' pictures... I was so excited --and just CLICKED away!!!)
