Bluebird rescue continues
Our physician son has taken over bluebird rescue duties at Deerfield during his visit. It's a family affair.
Nelly stands vigilant watch by the stove to alert us when there's a bluebird trapped.
This morning's rescue was particularly satisfying. When Lem released the bluebird on the porch, it was enthusiastically greeted by its relatives and welcomed back to freedom with loud chirping and fanfare. The birds played tag in the woods and then merrily went on about their business.
We are three out of four on stove rescues. Bluebirds have friends in Deerfield.
