Friday's Grand Connection Fun
What do you know about bluebirds? I didn't know much until Pops and I went to a talk about bluebird basics at the Witt Stephens Jr. Central Arkansas Nature Center.
We learned that bluebirds usually nest in late March or early April and have two broods per season. They lay four or five light blue eggs and it takes about two weeks for the eggs to incubate.
Guess what? Pops and I are now the proud owners of a bluebird nest box and it's ready for its first family. I can imagine the fun that our grandchildren will have as they hopefully watch the building of bluebird nests, laying of eggs, and development of the baby birds.
If you would like to build a bluebird house or learn more about bluebirds, you can visit the North American Bluebird Society.
Can you give us any tips about bluebirds or bluebird nest boxes?
Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God.
Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
“I tell you, whoever acknowledges me before men,
the Son of Man will also acknowledge him before the angels of God."
Have a wonderful weekend,
