had a great afternoon!  left work early because keira had her pre-k screening (she did awesome!) and then we hit the park!  after playing on the playground for a bit we walked the trail over to the nature center.  it was really cool!  i didn’t like the taxidermy of all the birds, kind of made me sad!  they had feeder windows and you could sit and watch the birds eat…..snakes….turtles….etc.   we enjoyed it.  i was talking birds with one of the workers and how i could not get the bluebirds to take residence in my box….she has the same problem!  haha!  i picked up some mealworms on the way home………so i am walking down to put them in the feeder after we get home…

what timing, huh???  i was so excited!!!!

i enjoyed walking around the yard after the bluebirds flew off.  i found this nest —– this isn’t the beginning of a hawk’s nest is it??

i walked down to the lower part of the yard and saw a few chickadees…..this one kept eying the hole in that tree…..and flying over and checking it out. maybe a good nest place?? i will keep an eye on it!

kona had some fun too!!! haha!

putting the hummingbird feeders up! hope they show up soon. i will keep an eye out for the hawk so i can try to get a better shot of him!
have a great weekend!

    Super timing with those Bluebirds! Love your pics of them!!!
    Really like that twisted branch with the Dee’s nest. Very cool find!
    I’m betting you will have Hummers this week.

    Great Bluebird captures. I bet they will nest, especially with those tasty treats.
    I usually get worms for them after the babies are born to hep momma out. She looks so worn out during feeding time.
