 So here they are, the little happy couple. Bluebirds! They are so pretty. I just hope none of my 5 cats discovers them here and kills them. I don't know what to do to protect the birds from the cats. It's just too easy. But so far, I haven't seen any cats interested in them.

I love this shot, like she's saying hello to me.

The handsome father. Helping out with the nest building. I love watching them.

Here you can see a little bit of wool I had thrown from a fleece I'm working on, in his beak for the nest. So cool!

So I guess I'm going to have to move my fleece skirting station off the front porch, where the bird nest is. They leave when I go out there. And I hate to disturb them. They are so busy. And there are 3 eggs now! I think when they start setting on them, it just takes a few weeks to hatch. Then a few more weeks for the babes to fly.

Really time for husband to get that snake. They are predators in blue bird houses. Don't know what to do about the cats though. :(
It's a miracle those tiny creatures survive. I love bluebirds. We have them here too.

Ha ha!! Snakes, not husbands! I did it again! I guess I am just pronoun challenged.
