Bluebirds Confirm Spring!

photos by Jonathan Schechter

Winter was rather on the whimpy side and then slow in waning in Oakland County, but the bluebirds kept telling me spring would come. For weeks I watched them perch on fence posts and flit about the meadows adding bold splashes of blue to a sometimes dreary landscape. But today, on this 27th day of April,  I inspected my bluebird boxes at the meadow's edge and made a discovery: Four pale blue eggs!

A new generation of this most beautiful of birds is on the way!
