Bluebirds at the Big House

Chuck was roaming around the garden at the Big House very early this morning, and was able to catch a lot of shots of the bluebirds that have taken up residence in the South border.  Everything I've read says that bluebirds like to have a lot of space between houses;....fortunately, the birds didn't read any of those books, since they seem delightfully happy living in houses only about 20 feet apart.  You really need to click on these photos to see them in full size to appreciate them.

I find it amazing that one will stand sentry while the other goes in and out of the house.  We haven't dared get close to the house to check things out in more detail.  I feel honored that these birds feel safe enough to let us approach this close.
