A pair of my favorite birds have nested in the bird house at the end of the driveway!
Can you see them? Look closely…
They are mountain bluebirds! Here’s a better picture, from Wikimedia.
I love these little cuties. They are cavity nesters; they nest in holes in trees (when they can’t find nest boxes). They eat bugs and berries, which makes them even more welcome additions to life at the ranch.
One of my favorites too – we have them here and they seem to love nesting around the old barn!
So bright and blue! I guess they are across the whole rocky mountain west, which is cool. I think of them as little jewels, but they are actually just another thrush.
camo cat will take care of them… and you will never know. s/b ninja cat
Camo cat does like to kill snakes. Which moves him several notches up on the awesome scale. I don’t think he’s gotten any birds yet…
