Day old chicks
This gorgeous Eastern Bluebird paid us a visit yesterday morning. He landed on a post in the front of my house as I was standing in the doorway having my morning cup of coffee. I was very happy to see him. I think they are arriving later this year than years past. We normally have a pair that nest and hatch their young here. I spotted him twice during the day in the big oak near the house. I hope his mate is nearby and that they are looking for the perfect place to build a nest.
We are off to the hayfields tomorrow if, and that's a big IF, we do not get thunderstorms. We had very strong thunderstorms yesterday and golf ball size hail in the next town over. Thankfully it missed us as is did quite a bit of damage. This hay was baled last week when it was dry. We just haven't had a dry day to move it home since it was baled.
