The moving vans are close behind. Word started to spread about it a couple of weeks ago. I waited and waited. Last week I saw the first male check out all our birdhouses, which Tim had cleaned in anticipation of their arrival. They need a house that has already undergone a spring cleaning and don’t like to live too close to other bluebirds. Interesting. They would rather leave near other species than themselves. We should learn a lesson from that. But I digress.
Before they left, they were seen discussing all the possibilities.
