My father built some birdhouses that contained a certain size hole to attract Blue Birds. Not Blue Jays, but Blue Birds. I requested some and had Hub attach them to the fence. We waited and within 3 weeks...we had Blue Birds. My parents are beside themselves that we have the birds nesting and they do not. Everytime my father is over, he grabs my binoculars and scopes the yard. Well on Tuesday I had an upclose perfect picture. This is the first time they have come this close to my house.
The males are the most brilliant color. This picture does no justice.
I hope that I do not come home one day to a missing bird house.
