Last week we arrived at our country property to find this male Eastern Bluebird in the process of ousting a House Wren who had previously claimed this nestbox. Surprisingly, the next day the bluebird pair were still at the house. We have never seen bluebirds steal a house from a wren before, it's usually the other way around.
~ During spring, a bluebird pair had success at one of our nestboxes. Lately we have spotted their 4 youngsters hunting on our property. Currently, 3 bluebird houses are occupied with couples. Looking forward to seeing lots of spotted bluebird babies in the near future!
Beautiful Yellow-rumped Warblers were a common sight this spring
Bruce kindly pulled the car over on the side of the road so I could capture a photo of these two long-legged young Sandhill Cranes accompanied by their parents
We watched from quite a distance as the Sandhill Cranes made their way across a vast cornfield to a small pond surrounded by lush vegetation. We were thrilled to catch sight of this wonderful family!
