I have to feature this cross stitch finish today because...
...yesterday evening this handsome fellow came by unexpectedly.
I have not seen a bluebird since 2013 (I think).
I have a bluebird house, but the Starlings use it - grrrr!
I didn't even have my camera, but was able to dash inside and get it.
No sign of a female. I wonder if I will see him again.
He certainly made my day - maybe he was the Bluebird of Happiness!
The Violet-green Swallows are beginning to stake out their houses.
I put out some cotton nesting material and they swooped and grabbed it all up.
Here's a bird carrying material off.
One bird lit for a moment...
...and grabbed some before taking off again.
This is the ball of nesting material.
I think it's rather early for the female American Goldfinches to be utilizing it. They normally nest in July.
Nonetheless they appeared interested.
Maybe they are scouting out nesting sights.
