Eastern Bluebirds

A joy in the Garden's meadows are Eastern bluebirds, who make use of the nestboxes and meadow-supported caterpillars to raise multiple broods each year.

The first breeding session is underway; this box is one of the most desirable, with a large expanse of meadow below.

I've been seeing a male bluebird perched on the top in recent weeks. I'll have to check if he's found a mate yet, and set up a nursery nest.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
