My ear for bird calls is getting pretty good. Not that I walk about and consciously think, “Aah, there’s a cardinal, there a robin, there the nuthatch,” but when something chitters overhead that I’m not familiar with, it stands out in stark relief.
Yay! We have bluebirds! This is the female, I think; I have one other photo of a bird that is much more brilliantly blue, but not focused properly (grrr, stupid tree branches getting in my way).
I’d only seen them once before so I was pretty thrilled to get some photos.
We picked up some more birdhouses at the Tri-State Bird Rescue open house on Sunday so I hope I can convince these guys to stay awhile. Or is it too late?
What little accomplishment are you proud of this week?
