Animals know more than weather forecasters, I’m sure! On November 12, 2009 at 7:00 am Log in to Reply Christine says: Maybe they work for the census and are just counting beaks.

I’ve seen one Bluebird since moving to Kansas…maybe now that we’re on the farm we can make some nice birdhouses just for them and they’ll come a callin! :snuggle: On November 12, 2009 at 7:53 am Log in to Reply quietstorm says: Oh my gosh, are they gorgeous! :snuggle: On November 12, 2009 at 8:28 am Log in to Reply Jo says: Oh my gosh…how lovely!!!

Maybe they are just checking out the accomodations for next year!

They could also be checking on the real estate to make sure that no other birds (squatters) have tried to move in while they were out training their last brood. Two males were chasing each other around last week before the rain started. They might be from this years nestlings … or just two males staking out the territory. Get your suet feeder up and watch their antics. :sun: On November 12, 2009 at 9:06 am Log in to Reply Luann says: I love bluebirds, too. These look like 2 males in this picture. They are probably looking for shelter for the night. It’s important to leave old nesting material in the box through the winter for this reason. Thanks for the sharing the beauty of your farm!

Great photo, Suzanne! :snoopy: On November 12, 2009 at 10:18 am Log in to Reply Catherine says: You know what they are, right? The bluebirds of happiness-that-you-got-a-wood-stove!

We had bluebirds falling down our flue the past 2 springs. Our dog loved watching them thru the glass! I would have to toss a towel over them and carry them outside! We finally put screening over the chimney cap. On November 12, 2009 at 12:44 pm Log in to Reply Barbee' says: Lucky you! No more around here, because of too much housing developments.

They love playing on my clothesline and swooping down to grab bugs. They are also visiting my suet feeder for the peanut butter suet I make.

They are so beautiful! I love bluebirds and have never seen a real one. I want a bluebird house! Its on my list for next spring but its a long list… I would love some clear, well lit, close up pictures of bluebirds to paint in rustic settings.

Every year we have several broods that flit from fencepost to telephone wire to pine tree looking for insects. In the fall they leave after the frost takes care of the bugs.They’ll be back in April! The sound of a bluebird is a happy one. :snuggle: On November 12, 2009 at 5:50 pm Log in to Reply monica says: You are so lucky! I always think that pretty things bring good luck!

I remember one cold Winter looking out my back door and all of a sudden in the “heated” bird bath was all these beautiful Blue Birds!!! It took my breath away! :snoopy: On November 12, 2009 at 7:34 pm Log in to Reply The Retired One says: OOooooo, so pretty! We don’t have them there, but I do have seven bluejays that live here and eat up all my birdseed. Even though they are aggressive, I still like them.
