Bye Bye Blues

Well the Bluebird saga has come to a close. What a ride it has been. But I am happy to report that the two little Bluebirds fledged! It was a fantastic ending to such a bumpy ride with the 2 pairs I had near our home. I can admit my anxiety as I neared that nest box yesterday. My senses were full throttle as I looked for flashes of blue around me, hoping to hear the call of one, and taking in the air as I neared the box, hoping to not breathe in the smell of death and decay. Let's not dwell on the 8 eggs that did not hatch. Let's not dwell on the adults that died for one reason or another. Let's celebrate the lives of these two new Bluebirds in our world. I have no photos for this one. I should have snapped one of the nest box with the empty nest other than the unhatched eggs. I did clean it out immediately as Bluebirds often do re-nest; although with everything that has happened, I really doubt it here. Regardless, I'm still ecstatic about how this has ended. Aren't you?
