Nine days ago, the female Bluebird was still building up her nest.

Since then, I have seen both Bluebirds flying in and out of the birdhouse, and landing on the nearby magnolia tree.

Yesterday, he brought her some food, a cricket I think.

Thank you, dear!

You are welcome! Shall I go get some more?

She went back into the birdhouse. He flew away. About an hour later, he came back and fed her something white, maybe a larva? It happened too quickly for me to get a shot.
