Bluebird House-Rauhallinen Farm

I added this Bluebird Nesting Box on Friday evening after work. By the following morning coffee on the patio, was fortunate enough to have a female Eastern Bluebird (Sialia sialis) begin her nesting rituals (after giving her thumbs up to the new habitat). The process and my being here brought to mind a quote from one of my favorite books....
"I am a frayed and nibbled survivor in a fallen world, and I am getting along. I am aging and eaten and have done my share of eating too. I am not washed and beautiful, in control of a shining world in which everything fits, but instead am wondering awed about on a splintered wreck I've come to care for, whose gnawed trees breathe a delicate air, whose bloodied and scarred creatures are my dearest companions, and whose beauty bats and shines not in its imperfections, but overwhelmingly in spite of them."
