High above the azaleas . . .
There is a tiny little house.
And in this tiny little house there are 5 beautiful blue eggs. So small and so perfect.
Isn't nature amazing?
The first time I saw an Eastern Bluebird it was love at first sight. I think they are such a beautiful bird. When I learned more about them I discovered that not too long ago they were very close to extinction. If you want to find out more about that you can click here. I was encouraged to learn that we could make a difference just by putting up a bluebird house in our backyards. Nine years ago we put two bluebird houses in our backyard. Since then we have enjoyed watching many bluebird families hatch right under our noses, not to mention the feeling of satisfaction we've gotten to know that we played a small part in keeping these pretty birds in existence so that we can all enjoy their beauty.
If you have had experiences with bluebirds in your yard, I'd love to hear about it. If not I would encourage you to try adding a bluebird house to your yard. If you enjoy backyard birds I'm sure you will find it to be a rewarding experience.
