Just the back yard!? Nah, I want the front and side yards landscaped in natives too.

The Blues

I went out to check on the bluebird babies, unfortunately my new cellphone doesn't seem to take as good pictures as my old one--I've yet to get a good shot of the babies inside the nest.

Here are some of the parents who were watching nervously from a tree.

I'm hoping the house sparrows cause no harm. They are notorious for attacking bluebird nests. I'm hoping the nest boxes are far enough out in the clearing that the house sparrows can't fly that distance to the box. Last year, a pair passed through and the bluebirds raised two broods.
