I can’t remember if I ever posted it here, and I’m to lazy to go look, but we put a camera on the bird fountain last year, and since its base is a heated birdbath we left it up for the winter. We’ve been seeing Bluebirds at it intermittently all winter, but this week in particular they’ve been hanging around, ALOT. Checking out the one nesting box that all the birds want, the bird bath, and so on.
I’ve ordered in some live mealworms, in theory at least if I put the mealworms in a cup in the heated birdbath they should be fine outside.
And I’ve ordered in an additional bluebird house on a pole, since thats the style that they seem to like here. There’s at least 3 pairs arguing over this one box already, so I’m hoping that if I put up another one in the back of the yard it’ll be far enough to entice in another pair.
And I’m sitting here watching them wondering if I can find a way to rig a camera to watch the one nesting box….
