Bluebird Houses

Situated at 3,000 feet above sea level, this rural community is known for wheat farming and abundant crops. It is also known as the bluebird capital of the world! Farmers and community people for miles around place welcome birdhouses of all colors and designs on fenceposts, sometimes only 1/4 mile apart. On one birdwatching trip, we counted more than 100 birdhouses and that was just on the route we took! There are more, more, more! Each little feathered friend can find room at the inn in this neighborhood. Today we were pleased to see vibrant bluebird pairs winging around birdhouses as if to say "Is this the one for us?".

  1. What lovely pictures, and how lucky you are to enjoy the bluebirds! We enjoy the birds in our area, too, and were pleased to find that one has made a nest in one of our houses.

    I always enjoy visiting...

    Fondly, Andrea
