Bluebirds have arrived to Whispering Pines

Bluebirds Defending their home

Today I caught a bluebird defending their turf and bluebird box from the sparrows.  It was tough to watch as the 4-6 sparrows pestered the bluebird in charge of holding down the fort.  There are 4 bluebird boxes on property and it’s pretty amazing to have them here.  But, you do have to take care to be sure the other birds don’t get there sooner and take over the box.  It was exciting to capture this photo of the bluebird defending and the sparrow flitting around.  Although it can sometimes be tough to watch nature run its course, it’s my hope is we’ll have at least a few of the boxes filled with the bluebirds!
