There’s a bit of drama being played out at the ToadMama abode today. The real one, not the Web one. It has to do with home occupancy.
For years, we’ve had a birdhouse in the backyard. A duplex (pictured below).
As you can see in the above picture, which was taken a couple years back, the house wasn’t in great shape. I (or Hubby) finally tore it down in the Fall. We replaced it with a cool, new single-family dwelling.
The Chickadees don’t agree. In fact, the Bluebirds haven’t been around much. They didn’t decide until after the Chickadees decided to move in that the place should be theirs. If you look closely at the picture above, there’s a Chickadee with a mouthful of nesting material.
Hubby thinks the Bluebirds will win.
By the way, as you can see here, her doggy spectacles are holding up nicely.
So, who do you think will win the battle for the house? Will the Bluebirds, with size in their favor, win out? Or will the Chickadees, who have already moved some of their furniture in, prevail?
Stay tuned to find out.
