Thankful Thursday - Signs of Spring

I am so thankful for the signs of springime!

While so much snow has fallen lately, the warmth of the sun has encouraged the meadow birds to keep pushing toward springtime.

The Mountain Bluebirds have formed pairs who stay close to each other almost all the time.

They are starting on their nests mostly inside boxes although some use tree cavities.

When one of the pair leaves briefly, he never goes far. This guy had his eye on his mate near the nest box.

He returned to the nest box with nest material, and she landed on his back, much to my surprise!

I adore these meadows. Often, the sun rises gorgeously over them. It did just that the other morning. I have a short video of the sunrise shot from the sky if you want a zen moment.

  3. The bluebirds seem beautifully exotic - we don't have an equivalent in the UK either.

    I so enjoy watching your videos on YouTube on my tv. When the animals make noise my dog will sit in front of the tv and watch it!

  10. Your bluebirds are beautiful! Our bluebirds (Eastern, I think) have more rusty-red on them and not so much blue.

  13. Between that music and the sunrise, we are feeling very calm and serene:) We love the bluebirds. We often wonder why the male birds of so many species is usually so much more colorful than the female.

  19. I've been enjoying watching two downy woodpeckers seeming to play together - I hope they are a pair and will let me know where their nest is so I can watch it with binocs :)
