If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you know I LOVE BLUEBIRDS. For several years, I’ve fed them, I’ve housed them; via a camera installed in a Bluebird house, I’ve watched eggs hatch, and babies grow. (All documented in blog messages.)
Due to our extreme Summer temperatures, the Bluebirds presumably flew North. This morning, I was so thrilled to see a beautiful male sitting on the post. Such a welcome sight!! I rushed out to my storage building for the feeder and mealworms. I’m waiting to see him/them on the feeder.
I dashed outdoors to get the feeder, and mealworms, despite the temperature. Last night was our coldest since last January. My furnace was not functioning!! I was cold under a mountain of blankets!! Then, gratefully, I remembered the “heat strip” installed (fifteen months ago) in the new air-conditioner. Pressed into service for the first time, the heat strip operated, and warmed my trailer home.
