Bluebird Soap Opera?

A bluebird pair set up house in our backyard nest box. It was love at first sight...
But then he became extremely jealous, and obsessed that no other bird show any interest in her, no matter how platonic.  He now spends most of his time, not paying attention to her or the nest, but attacking his reflection in our sliding glass door.  I taped newspaper over the door, but he is convinced that there is another bird behind the paper. He'll hang on the paper going after the tiniest of a reflection until she comes out of the house to yell at him.  Or I do.  

There are five eggs as of today. Stay tuned!


  1. So he's the bluebird of jealousness, not the same ring?

  2. Hey, Jughead, good to hear from you. I went to Baltimore last week for an Orioles game (vs. Pirates). Sorry to read about the SPMS realization.

  3. At least it's almost the all star break and we aren't in last place, a sign that miracles do happen, go O's!
