Blue bird hunt
Over the weekend Susan and I made an effort to get some photos of Western Blue birds. Our good friend Art Gruenig is responsable for producing and placing thousands of nest boxes. They can be found all over western Canada on fence posts along countless road ways. The Blue Birds and the world will never be able to thank Art enough for his work. A wonderful man and a life long naturalist. The strong presence of the western Blue bird can be atrubuted to his efforts alone.
It didn’t take long to find a mating pair working their magic outside one of these mounted boxes. After looking a bit further we found about a dozen more going through their spring ritual. They were so busy paying attention to each other they didn’t care that we were standing only meters away.
