This time of the year the little Bluebirds are so busy in my back yard. They are getting their boxes ready to raise their young. You can see them carrying sticks and grass to their boxes working on their nests.
The male as well as the female work side by side all day long on their box.
I took the photos below last summer. The birds had young in their boxes and they were catching insects to feed their young.
The little female above catches a bee. I sure would hate to be the young bird that gets that one for lunch.
The male Eastern Bluebird feeds his young a grub worm.
The young bird on the left wants his parent, the male on the right to feed it.
He finally gets tired of all the begging and flies away to find food.
A young Eastern Bluebird sets on the fence waiting patiently for his parent to return and for his next meal.
Last years young have returned and there will be more young filling my boxes and my trees in and around my yard.
