A flock of a dozen or more bluebirds are making a rest stop of our gardens and orchard. Males, females, and young are all flying from cherry trees to utility lines and back, swooping down to the grass, and eating the blue arrow-wood berries in the hedgerow. The adults hace examined several nest boxes. Joining in the air dance are several unfamiliar warblers, a buzzard, nuthatches, chickadees, sapsuckers, a phoebe, and an ovenbird.

The little phoebe thinks he owns the orchard.
