[cayugabirds-l] Bluebirds in Garden

2018-05-31 Thread Poppy Singer
I put up a bluebird box on my garden fence early this spring. A pair of bluebirds moved in right away, which was wonderful! I believe they are currently raising/feeding their second clutch of babies. During the raising of the first clutch, I was rarely in the garden and there were no problems.
