|Not a great photo, but it does show the male of the Bluebird pair that I saw at the Ziibiwing Center|
The new bluebird trail at the Ziibiwing Center is drawing attention from the local birds. Yesterday afternoon I stopped to see if there was any activity. I found several pairs of Tree Swallows either perching on or entering boxes. I also found at least one pair of Eastern Bluebirds staking a claim to one box. The birds are still very skittish and are best observed from a distance - as they begin to nest and acclimate to attention you should be able to approach a little bit closer. Out in the field behind the museum I also saw and heard at least two male Eastern Meadowlarks calling back and forth.
|Again, not a great picture - Eastern Meadowlark male|
Last week I even saw a birder, glassing the open fields with binoculars.
