At this very moment a bluebird is checking out my bluebird house! It’s never been occupied. He actually went in. Could it be? I’m so excited. Usually they check it out, turn up their beaks at the run down property and leave.

I also saw a goldfinch this morning.

  1. that’s so cool!! I saw a bluebird once, back when I lived in a rural part of Charlotte, NC. That reminds me, I need to go buy more bird food.
    From the sounds coming from the backyard, they seem to be frolicking in the dog’s water dish. I can never catch them doing it, because when I go check out the noise, no matter how stealthily I creep up, they scatter. Hopefully I’ll be able to get a photo.

  2. I guess there are bluebirds all over MN but last year at this time when one came house shopping here, was my first one. And today was the second.

  3. Occasionally a hummingbird will stop by here.  Cardinals too.  The rest of them are just “birds,” cuz I don’t know what the hell they are. 

  4. I’m a fool for the birds in my backyard. I’ve got four feeders for them and one for squirrels. Nothing gives me a bigger kick than to see them out there chowing down. Especially in the crappy weather.

  5. baha, heike made me snort.

    i’ve only seen one bluebird, ever.  little fuckers all hide when they see me, i guess.  also, i’ve had a birdhouse hanging out back for about five years now, and the most action it’s seen is the squirrel who crapped on it and ran off.
