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

Sad News

Today, I went out to clean out the nestbox that the bluebirds used for their first brood. Sad to say I found the remains of one of the fledglings. I'm not sure what happened, but a member or two of WildlifeGardeners have lost some cavity nesting fledglings to house wrens or the non-native house sparrows. I'm hoping the other four made it...and I'd love to see the young birds and know they are okay.

The male has been sitting on the second nestbox. I'm hoping they will have better success on their second brood.
