    I keep forgetting to check out this nest during daylight hours, since the nest is in Virginia and it's 3 hours later there. It's a bluebird nest with 5 eggs nearing hatch time.

    May the bluebird of happiness drop a full bunch on you . . . of happiness, that is!

    and I,m not sure what this bird is, but it looks like a chickadee

    This is a Great Grey Owl with several eggs, nesting in an outdoor nest in Montana.

    Those baby blue birds are eager to be on their way, I'm guessing.

    It's 11:35 p.m. here, and it's 2:35 at the bluebird nest and the babies are alone! Where's mom, and what is she doing out at this hour?

    They're alone now too--8:30 AM here, 11:30 AM there. Maybe mom is out scrounging for food for them.

    Looked in on the bluebirds just in time to see mom stick her head in and feed the kids. Feeling relieved! Eyes are open today.

    Yesterday a flock of small, beautiful and colorful birds showed up to eat last year's leftover mulberries. I was in awe. Many small birds w yellow across their squared off tail. Some red somewhere and white on the top of the wings. They came back again today. I have been looking in my books and I think they are Cedar Waxwings or close to it.

    Unfortunately, the tree, a two- leader tree, is scheduled to come down on Thursday. ;-(. My neighbor thinks it's ugly.

    I have just 2 days to teach her to see beauty in the imperfect!

    Lucky you, to get to see Cedar Waxwings. They are beautiful . . . so smooth looking! They used to come in flocks to our persimmon tree only when the fruit was ripe. They love fruit. I didn't see them except at the time. A neighbor of ours had a mulberry tree and used to pick the mulberries. She would sometimes bring us some. I don't think most people harvest the fruit to consume. But birds love it. Mulberry trees can be pretty messy when the fruit starts dropping, as can any fruit tree.
