Bluebirds are not unheard of in the Willamette Valley of Oregon but they are rare. This pair showed
up yesterday while I was standing at the kitchen sink. The first to fly in was the female and then the male. The male let the female bathe and then he took a turn.
We have taken measures to attract Bluebirds but this is the first time we have ever had them show up!
Watching the sequence of events was quite thrilling! We have a bluebird house on our driveway and have high hopes this pair claims it before the Starlings do!
Another fascinating bird came to the suet holder. He is a Flicker, a type of Woodpecker.
We are aware of the beauty that surrounds us and are grateful!
No matter where any of us live there is plenty of beauty to notice, and much comes in our own front yards. This week was certainly busy with birds in Beavercreek, Oregon!
