bluebirds making it happen

A pair of Eastern Bluebirds will be busy feeding their five youngins any day now after the eggs hatch. The female got an early start on the next nest.

The male flying around and around the nest box and checking out the inside. If he thinks it's a good option he'll have the female check it out.

The female checking out the nest box. Will she approve?

Sold! She decided it was good enough to start their second nest of the season.
