the little silhouette in the new header above Â is an eastern bluebird. Â because of the time of day and lighting, i was unable to get a shot that showed off his beautiful coloring. Â i do like the silhouette and find it interesting that it looks flat, almost 2-D.
after i captured the photo of our little bluebird friend, these guys built a bluebird house with their Opa. Â a special project to introduce them to Opa’s Workshop. Â he is a master carpenter; at least in my eyes and i’m so very excited that he wanted to share some of his knowledge and expertise with my boys.
we’ve noticed the bluebird around here for a few years now. Â so a box was just what we needed to make him feel at home.
according to Ian, it needed to be painted. Â so we headed to the local home store and he picked out a nice “bluebird blue”. Â at my suggestion, they added some bright colors on top of the blue with fun designs. Â not sure if the bluebirds will like their new home, but it just might scare off any predators.
