I had a spring treat early this morning. There were 3 Bluebirds squabbling over a nest box. There were two males for sure, but I could only find one female. There may have been another female that I couldn't find in those low light levels. My Bluebirds have to battle the House Sparrows for a box, but usually do win one or two boxes.
I also am seeing more Robins now that there are a few green patches on the lawn. I also have a wet spot on the lawn which has provided a place for a drink and bath through out the winter. Lots of birds come for that. I had the neighborhood Mockingbird a few days ago . I have lots of Winterberry bushes which are loaded with fruit, yet I never see any birds on them. I'm wondering if the more cultivated varieties are not as tasty as the wilder ones?
