Oh, thanks for the reminder on cleaning out the boxes! They do clearly
get used by somebody during the winter, mice I suppose.
I'm visited from time to time by small groups of Bluebirds all winter,
sometimes checking out the boxes (I've read that groups of them will
crowd in together on cold winter nights) or just hanging out, and not
infrequently I'm surprised to hear that distinctive song even in January
cold. They don't stay long, though. The visits are usually only an
hour or two and they're off again somewhere else.
Wish I knew whether any of the winter visitors were "my" bluebirds or
just some random gang that happened to drop by.
