Bluebird Update — alas no new pictures

We are expecting!!!!!!!!!    Yep, there are five little eggs in the bluebird box.  Bob peeked.  

But getting there was exciting.  There were a couple of weeks where we did not see the female bird around at all. Occassionaly the male would come around, sit on the top of the pole, and look inside the house.  Bob checked during that time — a lovely little nest with no eggs.

Then this last week, the box slid down the pole.  Why we don’t know — perhaps the wind caused vibrations or a crow sat on top of the box.  No matter, Bob looked inside and saw five perfect little eggs.  So he put the box back up on the pole and waited to see if the parents wold come back.  They did, it seems like a miracle.  Now the female is spending a great deal of time inside and the male sits on the pole.

No great new pictures, so I will repost a couple old ones here.  But if we are lucky in a few weeks there will be pictures of baby chicks.  And next year, we plan on having a bluebird cam.

Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
