I am obsessed

1. I feed them mealworms 4 times a day (can bluebirds get fat?)
2. I got upset yesterday because Caleb mowed too close to their pole.
3. The ICHTHUS tents had to be put up to dry out this morning and I had the kids set the tents up AWAY from the bluebird area.
4. I've stopped putting bird seed in my platform feeder for fear of attracting house sparrows and starlings (they can harm bluebirds)
5. The bluebirds have now reached my #1 favorite bird spot taken from the orioles.  
6. I get sad thinking about the babies fledging and the family moving along.

Cute Jessica... I'm a bluebird Nut-case also when we have them. All of ours have fledged --and I don't think they are back to do it again yet.

Keep us posted.

Yeah!!! Yeah!!! Yeah!!! I am so glad I found you! I think I wrote you a long time ago, because we lived near eachother - and I was so happy to find another blogger. Well, of course I had forgotten your blog name - and for some reason it just came to me - kind of like Five Pines in Berrien Center! And another reason I was so glad to find you - I know your mom and dad!!! Sherry B., right? My husband is Clay Carlson - a pottery from St. Joe - and we used to do the fair at Chapel Hill your mom organized! Small world! So I was so glad when I could find you again!

And then all your wonderful bird pictures, and photography things - wow, how did you get bluebirds AND baltimore orioles AND hummingbirds!!! Wow!!! And those photo class - I would love to find classes like that!!!

Anyway - I hope we can get together sometime - would love to meet you in person!

Have a great week - Hugs, Diane
