The tree (above) was driving me crazy with its red budded beauty. It just doesn't show up as well in the photo as it did in real life.
At lunchtime, I took a walk at Breakneck Hill Conservation Land with Freddie. By this time, the sun was gone and the clouds had taken over.

posing nicely on a fencepost and looking very gorgeous!
Back at home, I saw Mama Eastern Bluebird fly out of the nest, and then something unusual happened. Papa Bluebird went into the nest. I had not seen this behavior before. So far, he had just been posting guard in a nearby tree and calling warnings to Mama B. if either a car or a person was in the area.
I focused my camera on the nest box to wait for him to exit and was happy to catch this photo. I wonder if his going to the nest meant that the babies had been born, but I do not know. I plan to wait until I see the parents bringing food to the nesting box before I try for a baby bird photo.
Not bad for another cool, cloudy day!
