“In order to see birds it is necessary to become part of the silence.” Robert Lynd
“The Bluebird carries the sky on his back.” Henry David Thoreau 1852
I was always told it took a special birdhouse to attract Bluebirds. Well this round, metal coffee can attached to a beam near our carport roof attracted them. My daughter cut half of the plastic lid away and my husband glued a small board to the opening so the birds could have a better place to perch. I could stand in the living room and take pictures of the 3 babies through the window. The smallest of the 3 babies (in the last pictures) was hard to convince he should leave the nest, and join his siblings in the trees.
