Backyard Birds

4-24-17 Bluebird

This past Monday a bluebird was checking out a nest box I set out specifically to attract bluebirds. Now I’m hoping they actually use it to raise some young so I can get better photographs. They checked it out last year but chose not to utilize it. When a pair of chickadees started building a nest in the box, the bluebirds chased them off and the house remained empty.

Every year I have birds nesting in the nest box I built. I’ve had tree swallows nesting in it but most of the time it’s chickadees. This year a pair of titmice took up residence. Right now they are actively feeding their young. I took this photo about an hour ago as the adult paused before going into the box to feed the little ones. I’m loving the 7D Mark II.
