I have 9 bluebird boxes that I built and monitor. Five had Western Bluebirds that successfully fledged young this year but this one box had the only pair of Violet-green Swallows of all the other folks that I know having boxes. I felt very lucky so took lots of photos before I could get this one of the male feeding young just before they fledged. I am very active in our birding community, but building and monitoring these boxes was one of the most meaningful and enjoyable activities i have experienced in the world of birds.
