Bluebirds! Season 4. Episode 2.

Eastern Bluebird, Charles River Peninsula, Needham, MA
Three couples, at least, still on the property. Some apparent interest in box 5, though a bit of sinister house sparrow cheeping in the background made me question the wisdom.

Someday I'm going to try to tell the individuals apart. This one puffs up nice.

The real news, though, was the return of the tree swallows. Not on the nest boxes yet, but soaring above the peninsula. What a joyful return.
And first phoebe, with a commemorative photo. It was singing.
