Bluebirds

I went for a walk and when I came home, I saw a bluebird fly to a branch in the tree in front of my house. I have never seen bluebirds here before so my heart skipped a beat. Then I noticed another bluebird flying in to join it. Wow, a couple! I do hope that they are planning on building a nest in the tree and treating us to the sight of baby bluebirds. Have you noticed any unusual birds where you live? Are there any bird couples? What kind of birds usually live near you?

I have bluebirds every year in the backyard. I am waiting for them to nest now. Love these, my favorite.

That's great. I hope your bluebirds have babies and come back year after year. I am so excited that they are scoping out my tree. I hope they stay.

@akalinus You will need to put up a house for them.

@CarolDM The branches of the tree are pretty high up. I don't know how to get up there. All the lower branches have been cut down over the years.

sometimes i saw this bird on the tree we have in our yard, it always makes this sound that I know, not the usual bird that sits on there

It is fun to watch birds and see how many different kinds you can spot. What usually is there?

@Lucky15 That's great. I know you must have a lot of different birds than we in the states do.

How exciting. I don't think I ever saw a stork nest in real life, only videos. Do you have a lot of storks there?

@akalinus Yes, because I live near the river, but they rarely settle where there are people.

@Nevena83 That is an awesome photo of them. They are interesting birds. There is a joke in the USA that storks bring babies to people.

I don't normally notice birds but blue jays do live around here. We saw them all the time when I was a kid on the farm.

My bluebirds did not stay. At least, I have not seen them. Jays are like crows, clever thieves, maybe not as smart as crows.

@akalinus Blue Jays are in the same family as crows. I'm sorry they didn't stay.

I have never seen the bluebirds here. I thought they were a more northern bird like in NY state. I saw some green parakeets flying around a Walmart parking lot once, though. Do you ever walk out on the trail and spy on the birds?

I am noticing the usual ones, sparrows, chickadees, doves, goldfinches and magpies. I hear, but I cannot see a cuckoo bird.

Are cuckoo birds real birds? I heard of the ones in the clock but don't know if I ever saw one flying around.

@LadyDuck I don't blame you. They drive you crazy. Someone I knew had a cuckoo clock and it was annoying. Those birds sound like lazy users. Like some people I have known in the past.

@akalinus I hate those birds, they are lazy, they squat the nests of other birds and their singing gets on my nerves.

I don't like either one all that much. Pigeons are messy. Crows can be entertaining though. They are clowns sometimes and little thieves.

Redbirds are pretty. Are they cardinals, a lucky bird? Or robins look read too. I'm not sure what else might be red. I just looked and there are a whole bunch. Tanagers, finches, crossbills and grosbeaks, to name some of them.

My husband saw ducks in a neighbor's yard when we went out last week. And, every so often, I'll see large white birds.

Ducks are so exciting. I have seen videos of them jumping out of nest boxes that people put up. The fun ones show the ducklings plopping down on the water. The big white ones could be ibises or egrets.

@akalinus Yeah. I'm not sure what they are. All I know is they have no issues walking on the street and aren't afraid of people or cars.

@kaylachan If they are really big, they might be Sandhill Cranes. They are protected and pretty much do whatever they like.

I noticed a robin. It is a very common ground bird but what made it unusual was that I stared at it and it stared back at me. It was only one winter but it seemed like forever.

Winter always feels like it will never end. When you see robins, it is the beginning of spring. I love to see them hopping around the yard but have not see many here in Florida.

Yes, they are. I have a hummingbird feeder. It is almost time to put it up. They like sweet water. I have never tried to feed them before. I heard they defend the feeder and try to keep others away. I probably need more feeders.

Every place has its own kind of birds. I have not seen the bluebirds again. I hope they come back. I want to get a house for them or make one but I don't have saws and such to cut out the pieces.

They were too far up the tree to get a good photo. I could try if they are still there tomorrow.

Kay said ma look straight through there. I looked and could not see anything then I saw the bird sitting on the branch. I am pretty sure she said it was a bird we don't see here often.

Do you remember what it looked like? The color, big or small, or whatever? I think the weather is changing and living things are moving to areas that they never stayed before.

No Bluebirds here. Nice find! We do have Bluejays and Cardinals which have mates. They come to my feeder daily and watch out for each other while feeding. Currently I have a Starling couple who made a nest inside a hole in my cherry tree. They have babies they are caring for now.

I like Cardinals. You have a lot of birds to watch. It must be thrilling to see the baby birds. We used to have Sandhill Cranes here but I have not seen any in a couple of years.
