Surprise … a Pair of Bluebirds

Buffy and I headed out for a loop walk while the sun still covered most of the backyard.

 The eastern bluebirds arrive in southern Illinois during March into April. I hope they decide to stay and nest in the yard.  Of course we need to have a cavity that fits their specifications.
