A Bit More

Friday, May 02, 2014


The bluebird is New York State's official bird.
Its population dwindled as attacks by English house sparrows chased them from their nesting sites.
Over the last years, New Yorks busily installed bluebird houses on their properties.
The result of the concerted effort, according to an article in our local paper, The Times Herald Record, touts the bluebird's resurgence thanks to houses like this--one of several in our back yard.
Nice to read.  Wonderful to see.  A sight to enjoy.
(Are you old enough to remember the elementary school song that is the title of this post?)
