Western Bluebirds are nesting on the Mendonoma Coast

Western Bluebirds are cavity nesters so people can entice them to nest by putting up a birdhouse in the right location. Siegfried and  Gretel Matull have done just that as the photo below will attest. Their numbers are declining so any help we can give them is all good. And don't rush to take down a dead tree - that snag can be a nice home to a cavity dwelling bird for many years.

I wish they came to our property, Marlene. They stay closer to the bluffs. I agree - they sure are pretty! I have photos of the parents feeding insects to their young. I will share some of them here.
