Both Bluebirds have been busy going out to find food and bring it back to their nest. I suspect they now have babies, but I have not seen them yet. Meanwhile, the parents have been flying around our backyard, paying little attention to me.
While I was searching for my Bluebird friends, a plane flew overhead as it prepared to land at Trenton Airport, about 10 miles from our house. I aimed the camera skyward and got the following shot.
A short while later, a Cooper’s Hawk appeared, and gave me enough time to snap three shots.
Our Bluebird couple was perched on the Crape Myrtle as usual.
Our yellow Magnolia tree flowers late, and has managed to attract Bluebirds for the second year in a row.
The Bluebird, or its partner, checked out one of the birdhouses I put up.
However, there is no sign yet that the birdhouse is occupied by any bird.
Meanwhile, during a walk around Colonial Lake, I saw an abandoned Canada Goose egg on the ground, near the water. It was quite big, but there was no Canada Geese around it.
One can see many Canada Geese at Colonial Lake, either swimming in the water or grazing onshore. I have no idea why this one egg was left out in the open with no mother goose tending it. Another mystery.
