Blue Birds nesting at WBU Nashville

First time in many years we've had bluebirds nesting at WBU in Nashville. There are literally dozens of house sparrows at the store, but our male bluebird - affectionately called "bruiser" - is MUCH more aggressive than any other bluebird I've ever witnessed. He guards the nest box and feeder with all his might...swooping and fighting off not only sparrows, but ANYONE who comes too close including finches, chicadees, robins, mocking birds, blue jays and even employees!

So far, so good...Mom and Dad have been feeding babies constantly this past week and hatchlings should fledge by Monday or Tuesday.
