The Square Odds – February 2022

While I was fighting with MassAdvantage, Garry went outside to feed the birds. He stayed out there a little while to try to keep the Grackles away, and then he went inside, but continued to watch them. And the Bluebirds came back. They don’t come often and only when we put out the right kind of suet — the kind that has mealworms in it because Bluebirds, like our Robins, only eat insects.


I’m glad. Things are not going well for this planet, our world. Yet whenever we see Bluebirds, somehow, we feel better. At least for a little while.

  1. Very handsome feathered visitor you have there. We saw a couple last summer, and they are always a thrill.


  2. Nice photos.
    This is why I like the little (song) birds.
    Beautiful to look at, entertaining, and tough little suckers as they don’t have the luxury of heating or ample food in the winter.


    • And they look so fragile. We actually have a lot of very small winter birds. Chickadees, Juncos, Tufted Titmouses, Cardinals, Goldfinch all are here all year round. This is the first time I’ve seen Bluebirds in the middle of winter. I think the feeders encourage them to not migrate. I was just happy they are here.
