Western Bluebird on a Metal Post

Late spring in Edgewood, a male Western Bluebird sits on a metal post not far from the nest box, watching over his growing family of nestlings.  He faithfully catches insects and deposits them in the waiting beaks of his little children, and takes turns with his mate as she takes time out of the nest box to feed herself.  He is so faithful and dedicated to his family and an inspiration to fathers everywhere!
