bluebirds at the community gardens

Its spring! The birds are nesting. Skippy and I walked through the gardens at Rock Meadow (Belmont) where I hope to have a community plot assignment on Saturday. I was enthralled by the nesting birds. I didn’t look too hard, but found several nesting tree swallows and 3 beautiful pairs of nesting Eastern bluebirds!

There’s a big open field of conservation land adjacent to the gardens where the town has nesting boxes scattered. It is a beautiful habitat for many species.

  • I just love blue birds, but don’t see many where I live. But, I saw a very cute flicker yesterday, another that I don’t see too often.

  • It has been years since I have seen an Eastern Bluebird. Thank you for posting these photos. You must have been quick with the camera.

  • I’m so excited you caught the bluebirds on film! Did you hear the pheasant yesterday?

  • The pheasants are LOUD! I was at the plot this morning and they are very noisy. Its great. A lot of wildlife. A friend of mine recently saw a coyote in the meadow and my husband saw two deer yesterday.
