solo post - L click to see larger (the bird is a little camouflaged)
Just yesterday I saw a blue bird at the bluebird house, a chickadee gathering bits off of the crepe myrtle tree for a nest, this tufted titmouse checking out the Martin House, and I been hearing the woodpecker every morning too.
The little titmouse checked out several of the holes in this martin house and then flew away so I don't know if she decided on it or not. I wouldn't think the she would like this location because according to research they don't usually build in birdhouses - they like natural cavities in trees - and they like their nest to be up high, more than 8 ft. But because the martin house is up high maybe it has some appeal to her - we'll see.
I can tell the birds have been busy at work finding new homes and building their nest - there is a lot of activity going on in our yard. I just wish that I had the time, and the patience, to figure out where they each are building. I'll keep trying.
The photos on the left are taken by me, Leslye, the mother. The photos on the right are taken by my daughter, Taylor – unless otherwise noted. Comments are always welcome. thanks
If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
