I don't know what great thing that I did in a former life to deserve this, but the bluebird pair was checking out my new-and-improved bluebird box today.
To make it more appealing, this morning I dug the original nesting material out of the beer box and cooked it in the microwave to kill any bugs. I placed it in the new box and tried to reshape it to more of a cup shape that BB like.
When I checked it tonight, the cup shape was more pronounced than before.
I tried to get some photos of the pair on the box, but I was too happy to hold my hands still on the camera.
Everyone, send me good bird vibes. I have somehow been given another chance.
