Feathering

Somebirdy has been very, very busy.


Oh, there's music in the forests
And there's music in the glen,
As the birds are warbling greetings
To the spring that's come again.
All their piping is so merry
That the woodlands seem to ring,
With the praises of the birdsongs
For the coming of the spring.
Join the joyous woodland chorus
And raise high your voice in cheer,
Join the birdsongs in thanksgiving
For the springtime of the year!

Looks like you will have the perfect vantage point to see the chicks when they're hatched.

What a neat nesting box, is it for birds or chickens?

Cute little bird home! I wonder what lives there?

I'm sure you have noticed all the birds, singing in the morning and it almost sounds like some of them are having little arguments or tweeting out instructions and information! It does sound like Spring is finally on it's way in the door!

Have a good evening!

Pretty little green bird house, but has someone been "redecorating"... perhaps a squirrel? Love that shade of green. Our birds are looking for nesting spots too and chirping away. Have a good weekend.

Mama-Bug: The birdhouse is an old bluebird box, originally from Maine. I think it has been gnawed at by squirrels or some other critter :)

I love the poem. I am so ready for Spring. Can't wait to see who is in that little nest.

Hugs!

I love the blue bird box. At first I could not tell if it was a blue bird box or duck box. Duck boxes have an oval shaped entry. I have about 4 blue bird boxes in various stages of repair, and one in service.

That looks promising. We cleared a pine tree away from our bid box and some blue birds were checking it out!

It's nice to see that the birds are busy making nests. Perhaps Spring is near after all.

May I hop in again and thank you for the beautiful photos along your sidebar? Of course, the words are wonderful, too. Gonna have a look around your blog.

That looks like a well loved and well used bird house Jo. I love this time of year when the birds are starting to nest and the males are singing for thier sweet hearts...sigh. It's been a long old winter and I can't wait to get out and start on that shade garden inside the picket fence. First dear hubby has to finish the bathroom he just tore a part before he can head outside to finish the picket fence. Poor man. ;) Ahhh Spring!
Hope you have a wonderful day.
Maura :)
