Blue angel?

Jim and I sat down in our living room late this afternoon for a break from the lambing ground and chores, leaving the front door standing wide open so the dogs could wander in and out at will. As we relaxed and talked, a male bluebird came in and sat atop the door, looking around the room, and behind the door. The bird flitted in and out over the next few minutes, then the female appeared in the open doorway, hovering. She was shaped like an angel and inspected us through the doorway. The male attempted to woo her into the house, but once he went into the bathroom to continue his inspection, Jim shooed him out the door and closed it.

It’s always nice to know you have potential, isn’t it? I guess we have potential as bluebird hosts.
