Time to eat again
Remember my busy mom bluebird who was building a nest in this house back on May 8th? Well, now she and her hubby are busy feeding six new hatchlings! The resident territorial Mockingbird has been giving them a really hard time as he's chosen to perch on top of their home. You can see the "gifts" he's left behind. But, true to form, these two have still somehow managed to keep feeding their brood by having the male distract him in a chase while mom flies in to get feeding done. It's been comical to watch them outsmart him! Last night I was down there in the garden when they both showed up to perch on the house with offerings for dinner.
