“It’s just murder. All God’s creatures do it. You look in the forests and you see species killing other species, our species killing all species including the forests, and we just call it industry, not murder.”
Biggest excitement today, besides the second Bluebird egg: Purple Finches! It was three males and one female. Unfortunately, the one who came to the booth did so very late in the day, so the picture is not super. I hope they come back tomorrow for more fun.
On a sidenote, I am absolutely in love with my male Bluebird. He is doing everything to defend his area. I saw him chasing even a Redwinged Blackbird away from the photo booth today. Long live Mickey and Mallory! Nature rocks.
Breaking my rule again. These are no photo booth pics. But whoa :O! A female Bluebird has started to build a nest in my nestbox, as you know. Tonight, I noticed a BB who was singing very loudly, and he sounded kind of different (yeah I am nerdy like that, I think I can somehow differentiate their calls…) Well, lo and behold. It seems it was a different guy. These two were fighting like Peter Griffin and the chicken forever. It was crazy to watch. Pic quality isn’t great, but this is for documenting. Hence no watermark either. It gives me hope that my BB couple, I named them Mickey and Mallory, are gonna make it just fine :)
