Do they know something we don't?

I have a bluebird box out back that I can see easily from my bathroom window. I glanced out this morning and a pair of Eastern Bluebirds were doing their spring cleaning it seems....hmmmm....does that mean that springs just around the corner, maybe? I sure hope so. :)

I hope we don't have a "false Spring" like we did last year. Everything started to leaf out and then, boom!, a hard freeze.

I know, nothing here was hurt by it, but I know lots of people had damage from it. Hopefully that won't be the case this year.

i hope not either. last year i bought vincas 6pks as soon as they came into lowe's and home depot. i love how bushy they get and the make a good border around trees and large shrubs. anyway, i had to hurry to get them covered with plastic bags since i don't have a greenhouse. the silver lining in a false spring is that the damaged plants get marked way down.

When do Bluebirds start nesting? As early as February  April for the first nesting.
You may want to inspect the box.
First day of spring: March 20.

These two BBs spent the night in this box on one of the nights when temps dropped to 18°
