This female Eastern Bluebird and her mate built a nest over about ten days. The male tried to supervise, but was very little help. Every time the female came with nesting materials she appeared to be waiting for the male to either notice what she was adding or seek his approval. I have a hilarious video of them “arguing” over what should be included and what shouldn’t!
