http://www.ellasharp.org/. about helping Michigan Bluebirds thrive and survive. It was presented by the Jackson Audubon Society and the speaker was the president of the Michigan Bluebird Society http://www.michiganbluebirds.org/. It was very informative and helpful. We put up a nestbox last year, but the sparrows took it over, which we found out is very common, and believe it or not, the most aggressive bird against the bluebird is the house wren! That little thing will break the eggs and even pull a baby out of the nest if it gets a chance. If you enjoy birds and birding, the Jackson area is a great place to explore. http://www.jacksonaudubon.org/

March - Lamb or Lion? Today, March 2, it is a Lion! Rain, Wind, and Thunder, and Maggie, our dog, is right under my feet shivering and shaking(she hates thunder). But, spring will come, and in honor of that, if you stay 2 nights here at Dewey Lake Manor Bed & Breakfast in the Irish Hills of Michigan, the second night is 50% off.
