Someone installed bluebird nest boxes on many of the country roads near PFHQ. I don't know who, but I suspect some Scout may have done this as a project.
Whoever did it, I'd like to thank them.
Nest box #4 was being seeing some action yesterday as I rode by with a load of groceries. Just as I passed, a bluebird zipped out of the nestbox.
I pulled over quick and parked using the JEEP as my photo blind.
Then I waited for the bluebird to return ...
At first I sat quietly like a good boy, but nothing was happening and I did have some perishables. So, I did the ol' reliable "pssssssssst, pssssssssst" call and sure enough, in came a beautiful blue bird.
All I got were these 3 shots before it took off again and though I waited a little longer, I really did have to get those groceries into some place cooler.
So, reluctantly, I drove on.
Not empty-handed though.
... By the way, today is the first day of Hurricane Season.
