Small home with a soft bed

bluebird house

Bluebirds did not deign to build a nest in their nest box this year. I don’t know why. Sad face.

I haven’t seen any activity around it this season, but I decided to take a peak inside anyway today.


Surprise! This chickadee flew out.

It sat on a branch quite close and, after a few angry alarm calls, settled into a pleasant chirping. Another chickadee was on a higher branch, fluttering its wings.

In the house: nest!

This one-handed photo doesn’t do it justice, but it’s mossy and downy and decorated (scented?) with little bits of dead tree flower blossoms. Enchanting.
