Western Bluebirds nest-building
Today I saw confirmation that the Western Bluebirds are planning to nest in the box I placed at 700 ft. elevation in the foothills of the Coast Range in western Yamhill Co. The female carried in some nesting material, and the male went in to inspect her work.
There was also a single Golden-crowned Sparrow at this location all day. Probably stopped here to take a break on the way north to Canada for the nesting season.
