Bluebirds


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.

The male of the species is more colorful (photo by Elaine R. Wilson).

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.

About cliffhousealpacas

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.
