2013 Project 365

Project 365/97 – Setting up House



It was a blustery cool spring morning and I was in search for some migratory warblers, in which there were none. But when just about to leave the parking lot of Greenbury PointΒ a very industrious blue bird caught my eye.

Gathering up little bits, she flew over to her nest box.

She actually had too much in her mouth and it took her three attempts to get through the house door with all her goodies.

Even the Northern Mockingbird thought she would help the blue bird with gathering nesting material.

Then the housing inspector stopped by to make sure the construction was up to code. This Eastern Phoebe was happy with what she saw.

All is well with the house building at Mrs. Blue Bird’s home. Happy Spring!

  1. Sweet! I love it! The birds are awesome!
    Hope you are having a nice warm Spring day where you are. We are pushing 67F here in western NY but have winds going on and they are calling for a spot of rain. Have a good one!

  2. Has anyone ever told you that you are a dynamic story teller!!! You captured a conversation with our winged friends and translated it for the rest of us! Excellent post….

  3. Love these photos, birds are fascinating creatures to watch – their rituals and chatter is a constant reminder to enjoy our surroundings.

  4. Love these guys! Such wonderful captures… So very sweet! I have a few mockingbird nests but they’re impossible to capture, deep in the entanglements. They love to dive-bomb me and the stray kitties. πŸ™‚
