Blue Bird

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 7 May 2018 in Animal & Insect.

I have a bluebird nesting box on my fence but the bluebird pair that I frequently see did not decide to move in. They are somewhere nearby. The male comes often to the feeder and then flies off in the same direction. I haven't seen the female so I guess she is sitting on a nest nearby.
