Location, Location, Location

For the past two years, my bluebird house hung in the backyard in what was really a bad location, hole facing into the wind.  A couple of other less picky birds gave it a try, but no bluebirds.


I finally took it down and moved it to a post in my gazebo garden in the front yard.


A mere four hours later, the house was sold!




Real estate here really is all about location.


Happy spring!

  3. Sold! That made me laugh! Such good news, though. And you are the BEST at getting bird photos.

  4. So exciting! I'm very happy for you, and those are great photos. Can I ask, what direction does the nest face (south, west?) and do you think that makes a difference?

    1. I think it makes a huge difference. Previously it faced south/southwest, and I think it got too much of the wind blowing in. Now it faces east, which is their preferred direction according to google.

  5. Your pictures are wonderful. I guess I have been too busy in the garden to watch the nesting part. I have watched Dad teach the babies to fly and the babies are so soft and beautiful with big eyes. I hope you will get to post all of it

  8. How wonderful! Only four hours? They were probably waiting for you to move the birdhouse to the right spot.
