That's a neat picture. Our bluebirds have been given a hard time this summer by the robins--they built close together. Even so, we now are seeing the bluebirds with their 4th family for the summer.
Thank you. We have five Peterson bluebird houses up, and the sparrows think some are theirs. I envy you for being able to watch four broods hatching. Maybe we will have better luck next year! I know that sparrows are not protected, but.I can not bring myself to even thinking about doing away with some of them.
Nature can be very beautiful but also cruel. Even the mockingbird though has its hard times. When we lived in Texas, I watched them build a low lying nest in a shrub. A cat caught one of the pair one night and the mate of that mockingbird 'cried' for over an hour. It was a very sad song.
great capture !
We have seen the blue birds do their share of antagonizing other birds, even us, when we get too close. Blue birds are the prettiest birds, I think, and to be commended for protecting their own, right!
You did it again, Dee! Another wonderful picture!
