Wednesday Wings - Possible Bluebird Tenant

Mr. Bluebird was hanging around one of the nest boxes Monday. He had Mrs. Bluebird nearby, but I didn't spot her until she flew away.

They're checking out the real estate, but they're not ready to start nest building yet.

Now that we're all used to daytime temps in the 50s with an occasional 60, cold weather is going to return tomorrow. Thursday night the low is supposed to be in the teens. That should give some of the early emerging plants a taste of reality.

March is typically the battle of the seasons. Winter doesn't want to go quietly away without the last word, usually involving snow on the daffodils in April. We still have a full two months in SW Michigan before it's safe to plant annuals.

Maybe he's holding out for a foreclosure or a short sale! We actually saw some stellar jays at my son's house last week. We don't have them on the island and typically they hang out at higher altitudes (or so I thought). Wish I had your picture taking skills.

I love that first photo with the house in the foreground and the bluebird in focus!

I did a double-take when I heard "low in the teens" on the radio. Brrr! I hope my French violets don't all freeze.
