Bluebird not so happy
In my post from Friday I told about the bluebirds frolicking in the yard after a rain and how happy they seemed. They aren't too happy when they wind up in the wood stove.
For some reason, bluebirds are intent on building nests in the metal cap that covers the pipe from our breakfast room stove. The cap looks bird-proof to me, but they find a way in. Occasionally, one will drop down into the stove.
Nelly, our Boston terrier, is quite the bird dog. She alerts us when we have a bird in hand, so to speak.
I usually manage to get them out without harm, just a beak full of soot.
