For the last two mornings, Handsome and his mate Bluey have dropped by around 8:30 a.m. They only stay just a few minutes, but it is long enough for me to say hello and take their photo. I’ve also seen them ducking in and out of their birdhouse in the backyard. They usually begin to build their first nest at the end of February or the first of March. Later, I noticed three males in the front yard. How do I know which one is Handsome? Simple. He is the one that follows me from limb to limb when I go outside and call him. (smile) Blue Birds are very shy but they also can become sort of tame and almost pets.
