Protective Parents









I went outside to hang up the laundry yesterday and realized after about 5 minutes that I was hearing an awful lot of racket from the birds. I looked up and these two guys were flying around and around the sky above me, chirping up a storm. They actually dive bombed me a number of times!

Our bluebird house has been empty for so long that I forget it's there. Obviously these two have taken up residence and are being very protective of whatever eggs or hatchlings are inside.

I think I'm going to have to wear a helmet to hang up the clothes! :-)
