    DH and I were sitting out front while supper was cooking and, at first, I thought it was a large butterfly, until it buzzed the top of my head to get to the feeder behind me .  Definitely made my day ~~~

    The bluebirds are here all the time now.  DH is (again) feeding them meal worms and they do love those.  We have 3 bluebird boxes for them and one is pretty active so we shall see .

    We also had house wrens show interest in the same to houses today that they built in last summer hanging in the front yard maple tree so it may be an exciting summer around here to sit and enjoy.

    Whoohoo! Maybe they are late due to the colder spring in many areas & storms in other areas.

    Two more (female and another male) showed up this morning to join the lone male from yesterday so yes, they have arrived .

    I agree that they are later than normal this year due to the long, cold Spring.
