This male Eastern bluebird was keeping a very sharp outlook near the nesting box. While Mama hunted and fed the babies, he was looking intently at his surroundings, chasing away squirrels and making sure nothing came near his babies. I love to watch him watching the skies, the ground, and everything in between. He’s got eyes like a little hawk! I know he sees me in hiding, but he’s gotten used to me now and pretty much tolerates my presence so long as I don’t make any abrupt movements. Today, I talked to him, and he cocked his tiny head in my direction, curious about the being behind the camouflage curtains.
