Bird Houses in Blue

Apr 21, 2018  Yesterday R & I painted the birdhouses blue and  changed their locations.  While we think bluebirds prefer blue houses, we also liked the color.  Now there are two above the old barn foundation and three in the backyard  picnic area.  They are paired because the Tree Swallows do not like to live within 25 feet or so of each other--they are close knit families that take up a lot of space. Spacing the birdhouses  gives the Eastern Bluebird a chance to choose a house--or take one the Tree Swallows have rejected.    LL
