Today after all of that work, I went out to walk the property (as I so often do). There was quite a lot of activity as I saw birds flying around. There were at least four up on the wire--I think I spotted five at one time. I thought they were bluebirds and possibly the fledglings...the photos confirmed it. :)
I'm thrilled to know that the young bluebirds are still around and growing up...though they still seem to need Mom and Dad around. I get the impression that their parents are mentoring them. :)
Another thing made me feel really good. They seemed very accepting of me being in the yard. One perched on the white pine I put in 3 years ago and stayed there as I took several pictures. I'd like to believe that they know I help make their nesting successful--aside from creating habitat for them, I make sure there is a clean, empty nest box so they can have more than one brood each year.
