Bluebird Update

Well, it's official!  I now have my very own bluebirds!  Can you tell how happy I am?  I've been waiting for 2 years.  I woke up to the most beautiful music in the back yard.  The male was singing his heart out.  By the time I left for work I caught a glimpse of the female too.  When I got home this afternoon I didn't see them anywhere.  The suspense was killing me so I peeked in the house.  A big grass nest was already being built.  Soon after both Momma and Daddy bluebird were back and taking nesting material into the house.  
On my way home from work I stopped at the wild bird store and bought some meal worms for them.  By this evening they had already found the worms and were loving em.  My Dad has his bluebirds trained to know when mealworms are being served by ringing a bell when he feeds them.  Maybe I can do the same thing.  They are going to be so spoiled living in my yard and I'm going to love spoiling them!

I guess if you keep up the spoiling, they will hang around in your yard for years and generations to come!
