It was a busy day for myself and a pair of Carolina Chickadees. They kept carrying bits of nesting material into the nestbox. I had cleaned out the box but had not removed the foam from the top vent. I did that today when I saw one of them pecking at the foam and dropping the bits to the ground. Hmmm....I guess they wanted some ventilation.
I checked my other two nestboxes and found the start of what looks like a Bluebird nest! It had new green pine straw and a nice cup already formed. They have been sneaking in it seems. I really can't see the nestbox unless I am outside. So, maybe I won't have them competing for the same box this season. So....Spring has began here in NW Georgia.
It was a wonderful sunny day, for a change, so I washed clothes. Yes, I have a washing machine. This is one sturdy little washer. Just the perfect size for a camper or other small living space. I have had mine for 5 years and highly recommend it.
As for a dryer, well the Sun is my dryer. Hanging wash on a clothes line is like therapy for me. It doesn't cost anything, the laundry smells great, and the birds were singing all around me. Not a bad way to spend some time outside.
