christmas bluebirds

I love my own personal Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom that lives in our woods and in the gardens.  This year I have some new winter residents, Eastern Bluebirds.  I first saw them a month ago, and then I saw them again just now. It’s official, I’m in love.

These are the things that make living here in Chester County, PA so darn special. These are the things we need to conserve and preserve.  These are the things that all the wanton development spoils.  Tyvec wrapped stick frame construction with nary a tree to be seen can never, ever replace the simple joy of seeing bluebirds in your garden.

Anyway, if you enjoy the birds one of the things you can do is participate in Cornell’s Feeder Watch.  It’s fun! (My husband doesn’t know it yet, but I signed us back up!)

  1. I am a bird lover and pamper them all year long. Right now, there are cardinals, morning doves, chickadees, blue jays and one special woodpecker out on my deck having lunch. They add so much simple pleasure to my day 🙂

  2. bluebirds love the seedpods of the Redbud trees! So fun to watch them…they come and go but we have seen them on Christmas Day three years in a row.
