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

Fingers Crossed

I left the bluebird box alone for a long while not wanting to even take a peek inside for fear the bluebird pair would not build a nest. Finally, I took a peek. Nothing. However the very next day, I looked again and found this:


Here's hoping they have more success this time. I'm glad they are back.

That's great news, I wish them, and you, luck! They sure built that quickly!

Thank you. :)

Yes, I was shocked. It seemed to me I checked in the evening, and by the time I checked mid-morning/early afternoon they had built that much. It looks like they may add a bit more, but I'll have to check in on them again.

Maybe the fact that I'd mowed the overgrown paths and there was plenty of dried grasses to choose from may have helped speed up the process.
