Bluebird House Hunting

The valley is home to two bluebirds: the western bluebird and the mountain bluebird. We usually get at least one pair of western bluebirds in one of our birdboxes each spring due to our close proximity to open fields where they like to feed.

They arrive in pairs, testing out each birdbox before (hopefully) settling on one. Here is a pair house hunting this spring.

We have a lot of mountain bluebirds in the area, but they don’t seem to have any interest in our birdboxes.
