When I moved the big plant container further out into the yard,
I left the tray behind.I couldn’t move both,as they were too heavy.I ended up putting some of the large rocks,the County gave me,under the tray,and setting the tray on them.Thinking it might become yard art.
You know I love my yard art…
Fast forward to today..
While laying the new sod,in the front yard,I kept noticing this little bird flitting back and forth to the tray…
(which had become filled with water from the sprinklers).
“What kind of bird is that?” I wondered….
I’m not too bird savvy….
It didn’t seem to be afraid of me,so I ran and got the camera,and snapped away.
But still,I wanted to know.
What was it?
I’ll call Dad.
I call and describe the bird.
Without thinking,he says,”It sounds like an Eastern Bluebird.It’s probably a juvenile.It’s that time of year.”
Hmmmm…I’ll look it up.Just to make sure.
He was right!
Juvenile Eastern Bluebird!
I gotz a Bluebird!
without even trying….
