I've think I've heard their babies but I'm not sure and I haven't actually seen them yet; here are the Peeping Tom culprits.
Katie kept a close eye on them. At first she barked, but when I explained to her that they were here first and probably had babies close by, I was happy that she listened carefully, minded me and left them alone. And, yeah, I did do a little yelling. LOL. She still watched them very closely, though.
They were making such a fuss fighting with themselves in the driver side mirror, I had to cover it with a towel. This morning when I made my coffee, I went outside and checked the mirror and front of The Palms for bird poop. I noticed my generator was right under the nest, and the noise and fumes wouldn't be good for the Mom and Dad or the Babies. So, when the coffee was done, I moved to the other side of the shelter. Since I have this site, no one should be parked on the other side next to the nest, and they will have more privacy for their little family.
I have tons more photos of the Mountain Bluebirds, and will post some of them in a future post.
|Can you see the bluebird right below the driver's side mirror?|
By the way, we are at Storrie Lake State Park in New Mexico. We decided to turn left instead of right at the fork to Santa Rosa Lake or Sumner Lake. When we arrived at Santa Rosa Lake, I didn't drive to the electric sites, which I'm told are nice, but after driving around the dry camping areas, it was a little too primitive for me, so we drove back to the little town of Santa Rosa and stopped along the street to make lunch and re-group. I took out the laptop and checked MapQuest. I was surprised to see that Storrie Lake was only a little further north than Sumner Lake was south, and if I didn't like Sumner, then I'd have that hour drive south and another hour's drive north to get to right where were were at that point. I was getting tired of driving, so I headed north to Storrie Lake, and am glad I did. This lake is also very low, but since a holiday weekend is coming up, I wanted to snag a camping site just in case they get crowded over the weekend.
The drive up here was so interesting, I took tons of photos along the way which I'll post another day.
We have a nice site here overlooking the lake. The temps are very comfortable, and the wind, although we do have some, isn't as bad or continuous as it was at Elephant Butte. It is pretty windy today, though. Maybe I'm bringing it with me. :(
From me and Katie, have a great Wednesday, everyone! :)
