Guess who's baaaaaack!

Hey, hey, hey! I have some really exciting news! Some of you may remember back to a few years ago when my mom and dad watched two bluebirds raise babies twice, in our bludbird box. Well, yesterday, a male and female showed up and acted just like they did a few years ago. My dad named them Mason and Mena and although we can't know for sure, we think these are the same birdies. At least, that's our story and we're sticking to it!

All day, the two birdies kept going in and out of the bird house and the male was constantly "yelling" at the female. The female keep standing on top of the box and yelling back at the male! Also the female kept flying at the back window and pecking at the glass. Sometimes, she would just sit and watch the TV through the window.

Sorry the pictures aren't so good, but my mom was taking them through a window.

My mom was very fortunate to have shared the bluebirds' antics with my dad and she learned sooooo much from him! This time, she only has ME to share it with. I have already been warned to LEAVE THE BIRDIES ALONE!

Mom and I can't wait to watch Mena build a nest. No, the male doesn't help...he stands on the deck rail and yells while flapping his wings as the female builds the nest. (That sounds about right!) We are going to take some of my furs and put them in an onion bag so the birdies can have it if they want. This is furs from 2 Aire-cuts ago...I found it in a trash can in the basement and when I brought some upstairs (which is a BIG no-no), my mom realized it was still here! I wonder if that will make the birdies smell like ME!

We hope to get some better pictures once the birdies get settled!

Birds love to use furs in their nests. You are very thoughtful to put them out.

Of course I remember when the birds came and your dad was there to help you enjoy them. I am glad they came back. I hope that seeing them makes your mom think of dad in a happy way.

Now, you have to keep away from them and no yelling, OK?

Princess Patches you are soooo lucky to have those B-UTE-iful blue birdies in your bird house. Our blue bird house in Idaho has been vacant since the folks hung it. :>(

Have a great week.
