Anser albifrons

Mountain Bluebird

I think Don saw them first on the morning of the 17th of May.
This photo taken today, they are definitly building a nest under the eaves of the house. The swallows where here that morning Don saw them. But the swallows did not stay, which most years they do. They might be back, when they will return i fear for the bluebirds.
