Tuesday is usually shop update day and I had big plans to unveil a new Stash Pack today. But I wasn't happy with 2 of the fabrics in the pack so I'm dyeing new ones this week and will have the Stash Pack next week.
Meanwhile, let's check in on the birds.
The first baby bluebird hatched! These are Eastern Bluebirds and we can usually count on at least one clutch each year. I took this photo Sunday and won't check in on them again for a few more days.
The Carolina Wren is a cute and tiny bird with a loud voice and an even bigger nest. She just love the propane tank. We've tried to dissuade her from building here but her second favorite place is inside my car bumper. She can build a big nest like this in my bumper in a few hours. We gave in an let her have the propane tank. It doesn't seem to do any damage. It's also right next to the wood pile where she likes to hunt for bugs.
She also had 5 eggs.
We have a Purple Finch that's nesting on the downspout under the eaves of the house, right outside our bathroom window. I can't get a photo but sometimes I sit in the sun with the binoculars just to watch for a few minutes. So far I just see her sitting on the nest. No babies yet.
It's always fun to see what Spring will bring to entertain us.
