We have good news to share...there are babies!!! The momma and poppa bluebird have been oddly aggressive with the other birds and backyard creatures this last week. Like this morning i saw the momma dive bomb a squirrel, that fell right off the fence he was perched on!! That made me start to suspect that something was up, and then tonight i saw them take a grub or worm into the house with them. So as soon as the two of them flew away I grabbed the kitchen step stool, opened the door and these little guys are what i found. I can hardly believe that these two little ones came out of such tiny eggs. We had 5 eggs and only could see these two...so we suspect that all did not make it. We are going to call them Hope and Joy....baby bluebirds of happiness.
Now as for this unnatural creature...anyone guess what it is? Nope, it is not some kind of new, never seen caterpillar. My sweet children were playing with their sidewalk chalk tonight and this poor unfortunate caterpillar walked right into the middle of their mess. And before he knew what happened to him he was covered in pink chalk dust. i think in the end they dusted him off and set him free.
