I monitor my Bluebird house. I keep it clean between families and dust off the welcome mat so that it shows well. A couple of weeks ago I noticed some activity but no Bluebirds were entering. Upon closer inspection I found an empty Chickadee nest and cleaned it out. Last week I found that the same thing had occurred; and yes, the result was the same. "C'mon Bluebirds", I thought, "we have a vacancy". Yesterday I spied a little Chickadee darting in and out of the nestinng box. Yep, another nest had been built, but this time there was a clutch of eggs. I honor this mama Chickadee's solid determination... and no, I did NOT disturb the nest this time; she wins!
Life is Good!
