Redfish Tail Shirts

Just got in the shirts I designed and am super stoked at how they turned out. They are microfiber, UPF 50, and super comfortable. Huge thanks to Paul Oliver and Anchored Designs who printed these great looking shirts. 

If you are interested in ordering some shoot me an email at fireflyfisherman@gmail.com 

Lady Bug House

I was reading about lady bug houses and decided to build one and put it up. We had a pretty impressive lady bug hatch and they have been loving the bamboo house. All it is is a bunch of bamboo tied cut to about 5 inches in length and tied together. I think they like it.

Success! First successful bluebird fledging.

Four out of Five eggs hatch.

Day 2 after hatching. One baby was removed. After some research the most likely conclusion was that the baby had died and mother blue removed it. 

Day 18 - Looking both ways before heading out

This little one was in the top of the tree in the front yard before dad blue went and coaxed the baby to fly over the house and into the tree line (green belt)  behind the house. It was very windy and these blues were doing great and clinging on tight. What a treat to be able to witness this.

A final nest check. No sign of the unhatched egg. Mom Blue was a very good housekeeper. Time to clean out the nest box again and see if we can do it all again.
