How sweet is this?!!!!
Home tweet home! That little guy looks quite safe way up there.
Really cute little bird! We have woodpecers here too, and they make a lot of holes.
This is totally awesome - a duplex :) and I love that the bluebirds moved in. Hey, it was vacant!! I can't blame em'
That's one POWERful picture.
Wow... I have only seen two Pileated Woodpeckers in my entire life.
Birdie seems quite happy to have happened upon this vacancy.
We have a wood pecker, the problem is he does his hammering at 5AM.
Well it is convenient and ready made quarters after all.
I just love bluebirds.
The woodpecker has definitely been busy , that's quite a hole!Love the bluebirds...just one of the many birds I see frequently while sitting streamside enjoying nature.
And free electricity to boot!
Great photos. Hope you have a good day.
She does look awfully cute inside their new apartment. I'm still trying to find a Pileated Woodpecker. I actually saw one last summer, but he took off before I could raise my camera.
kind of funny; someone else did all the hard work
I love seeing baby birds in their parents' innovative homes! Thank you for this!
All we want is our own little niche in this world.
Dearest Theresa,How precious the home is that contractor 'Pilly' built them!Hugs,Mariette
well, someone sure is creative. what a "smart thinker" ... out of the box thinker??! i always wonder how woodpeckers don't get exhausted or a headache at least?
What a happy post to read this morning!!
That's a lot of hard work to build that home. I just told hubby the other day that we need to put up some birdhouses, can't have them building homes in our logs :)
once upon a time a woodpecker decided he needed investment property to rent out.. he worked and worked and worked and he found his tenants and the blue birds side a year lease and moved in the pole house..
awwwwwww too cute!
The bird on the nest is a terrific shot!
Well, it seems to be a very good place to nest, away from just about everything. Except all those unsightly wires. Guess they seem just right to birds, though. :-)
Wow; I wondered if there won't be any problem for supposing electricity :-) Oh, no one can blame with that sweet looking Bluebirds♡♡♡ But NOT fair!!! My feeder was just for cats and crows p;)Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my American photographer friend Theresa, xoxo Miyako*Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my American photographer friend, xoxo Miyako*
Those sweet bluebirds! I hope they survive the season. They are sure in a dangerous place!
Beautiful they build a nest in an electrical pole.Very nice these Eastern Bluebirds.Greetings Irma
How sweet of the pileated to make a home for the cute little bluebirds! I happen to love pileated woodpeckers. I'm sure Fred Flintstone had a few pecking at trees in his backyard. And I love the sound they make!
Those are fabulous shots and how cute they look in their high rise apartment. Have a terrific Tuesday.Best wishes Molly
What great captures! I love this!
I Love this! From the "pecking of the hole" to the nesting mama bird! NEAT!
Beautiful birds. Greetings from Poland.
That's one way to irritate the electric company people!She's happy, though.
She knows there won't be many predators up that high! Smart bird! She could've picked a not so new pole, though.
How nice of the woodpecker to make them a cozy home.
How wonderful to just move right in, great pictures, Francine.
Oh Theresa, these are awesome pictures, birds are just amazing little creatures!
Our old pole had 3 apartments before the utility company replaced it. Lovely pair of bluebirds that you have there. Really is a delight seeing them.
There was a woodpecker at our house this morning too! I didn't get the shot because of deficencies in my quick draw technique. By the time I got my camera, the woody was gone.Surprised she made a hole in the telephone pole though.I thought those were oil treated and hardened...
They certainly wanted to move on up, move on up to their pie in the sky!
Happy ending....yay!!! Don't have that big bird at my place but they do live in this area...and isn't he just gorgeous.
How awesome is that! Love these photo's. :)
So glad that beautiful couple found a new home!
Do you have any idea how excited I get when I see a Pileated around here? And, how absolutely NEAT to have the blue beauties move into the neighbourhood. The power pole? Well, it's low on my list of priorities, as long as you can keep posting :)
I so approve of the new homeowners! They are Missouri's state bird!! Cool post Tex! Ima smiling!!!
There is an old power pole that holds the line to the pump for the well on the shop property that has holes like that in it. I saw a bird fly in one of them the other day.
OH my goodness, this is so sweet! She does look awfully content in there. :)
You've created a great human interest series with the creation of the hole and the occupation of it by the blue birds. Very good, story telling series!
That's brilliant, just about ready for Eastern Bluebird, love it.
Wonder if there was a charge involved in building them their new home? I am glad you were there to capture it.
Love the little one nestled down in her new home!! Sweet!
I've never seen a hole that big from a woodpecker. At least it is getting some use.
That's so cool! Maybe the Pileated is really a contractor.
I find it rather unusual for the birds to nest in a power pole,but I guess whatever works for them.
super shots, that little PPPP had to work hard to make that size of an abode, I hope the little stinkers are paying good rent!
oh what a beautiful home and I must say, I love the builder. ;)
That is awesome. Such cool shots!
Awwwwww, that's so sweet!
What a hoot! I loved your commentary, sweet little bluebirds.
Good photos, I love those birds, I especially like the one at work!
Great pictures! I am delighted with them. Greetings.
Wow, that is pretty cute! They sure are high off the ground up there. I hope their nesting is successful. Great captures.
Any hole in a pole!
Yay, good for the bluebirds.Wonder why the pounder never occupied it.
It looks like they designed a safe haven for themselves, until the power guy shows up, which I hope is not too often.
Wonderful, Tex! ;-)
dit is geweldig mooi.
Oh Wow - How cool is that?? You lucky girl, you.
I can only imagine the hard work to make their new home, as power poles are such hard timber. Super photos, hope we see the babies later on. Cheers, Jean
T, those huge woodpeckers can sure make a mess of things! Nice to see that the mess is going to the Bluebirds!
Dzięcioł przypomina mi naszego dzięcioła czarnego a z kolei te mniejsze ptaszki naszą pleszkę:)
So cute! I hope this new home will provide a safe haven for the bluebird family. But, this is why my lineman hubby isn't too fond of the woodpeckers that I like so well! :)
I just love this!!! Nature is amazing!
Great story ,Nette
They're adorable! They have a room with a view.
Beautiful bluebirds and very interesting how they got their new home!
That's a great story and all caught on camera!
Well, wasn't that just so nice of that pesky Pileated? Hopefully the new residents will keep any new construction to a minimum. So sweet. xo Karen
I'm so glad the bluebirds found a cavity to nest in.Beautiful pileated woodpecker!
I love the photos of the blue birds. Looks like an awesome nest they've built. Loved this posting.
Now isn't that interesting! Hope they make lots of wonderful little Eastern Bluebirds:)
I think they look great in their new home. From Findlay
Aww, they found thier own little "5 star" doll house! Just too cute~
That's one big hole in your pole. Hope it doesn't weaken it too much.Nice to see the Eastern Bluebirds make use of it.
That's the cutest little birdie sitting inside their new digs! What a great capture.
The Pileated Pole Pounder appears to be a homebuilder. And what a sweet couple moved in!
Wonderful pictures Tex!How sweet the little birds look in there new house!Great shots!Dimi...
Very nice ! How much is the rent?
What an amazing bird to put holes like that in poles. Glad to see it's been occupied.
Cool captures of the Pileated and the cute Bluebirds! The Mrs does look comfy there. Thanks for sharing!
What a fun thing to watch! They're so pretty, too.
That must have been one persistent wood pecker!
So the woodpecker built it but the bluebirds live there... Interesting:@)
This is so adorable! I'm glad the woodpeckers efforts paid off.
Beautiful shots of all the winged visitors around your place. It looks like nature is helping out. Worms or grubs invaded the pole and caused some rot decay, The woodpecker dug out the nest and little birds took over the cavity. All so much fun.Hugs,JB
Love it! Those are some of the sweetest birds.
Well how neat is that -- they found a new special home. Cool. We have red-bellied woodies waking us up every morning lately ... on our power pole or on our roof (I hope they don't peck holes in the latter while we're gone for the summer!)
Ha ha now would you believe, just how well all that worked out! Great photos T. Just love your post :D)
I love your cute bird story and photos. It is wonderful when nature sets up home where we can watch.
Got the new house for a "song" ;)
Darling! Great new digs! :)
Roomy digs! Hard to find a place ready-made that fits your needs just right. Gotta wonder, though, what that woodpecker was after.
Wow!!! VERY truly amazing!!! Thank you, I love this!
How perfect is that!!! The pileated made a home for the bluebirds. Great story and shots!
Ha, amazing! I think I would need some serious power tools to bore out a hole like that!!
Talk about high-rise living.
That is so sweet that you captured this pair together!
A snug little bird house, although the utility company probably doesn't appreciate it.
ADORE this!ALOHA from HonoluluComfortSpiral =^..^= <3
Looks like a cosy new home for the birds. Love the bluebird.
Nice of the Pesky Pileated Pole Pounder to make such a nice home for the Eastern Bluebirds, just too bad it's in your power pole!
Oh my . . . what winner photos those are . . . and Bluebirds TOO . . .
Great story! So Pileated Woodpeckers are the general contractors for bluebird homes!
WONDERFUL captures! Those bluebirds like living dangerously, though, don't they? :D~Lindy
How cute and a nice story with a happy ending. Want to see the babies next. xo Jenny
You wouldn't think any of them would want to be that close to electrical wires and such. But she looks very happy. :)
Sorry about the pole but looks like those little guys put it to good use. Maybe you can catch some shots of the little ones.
Fantastic pictures! I hope you catch some shots of the babies when they come. :)
Great job the woodpecker did. Good to have a Carpenter in the birdlife :-)
That is so cute! Nothing like finding the right place.
Nice captures and a lovely story. Birds have their own needs and we have ours. As long as it doesn’t create any harm or danger (since it is electric pole), things sometimes need to be overlooked for such cuties.Yoko
Amazing photos! I thought that Woodpecker was an utter star in that first shot but I was equally charmed by the Bluebird couple. Would love to see both species some day!
Interesting series! Hope the hole doesn't weak the pole
Good home made bird ...Precious Teresa :)))
HI Tex How wonderful. You see nothing is wasted in Nature, if one bird does not use it, another one will. that last shots is marvelous. Don't forget to link me in tomorrow as I will be on a boat!!!
step by step series - love it - you have a good watchful eye - nice shots...Hugs
You know I have seen woodpeckers but never actually a hole that they made. It's amazing. I really enjoyed these photos.
Wow.. what a great symbiotic relationship... except for the power company, I suppose.
Oh how cool is that. What a sweet little nest!
I love pileated woodpeckers! I once saw 3 chasing each other in a forest. way cool!It's nice this one left a lovely home for bluebirds :) - The Equestrian Vagabond
what a lovely series of photos, the bluebirds look very happy with their new home
How wonderfully sweet! Love your photos. Glad the bluebirds are so happy there.
Such sweet little tweets!
Love the Pileated Woodpeckers! Glad the bluebirds are making use of the hole!
Nice pictures - good to see the hole is being used and it's not just empty!Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
I didn't realize how big the hole was until the last shot- wow!
Oh so sweet!!
How wonderful this is and that you even came upon all of the busy work. I love that the one hole did not go to waste...hmm, wonder how much those Bluebirds paid the Woodpeckers to build them a new residence ;)
Who knew Pileated Woodpeckers were into real estate construction and leasing? Cute tenants! The woodpeckers can do some damage, can't they?
Brilliant post Tex. I love seeing things like this. How many people in your area would not even notice the holes never mind what made them or who lives there.
well, that was neighborly of the big fella!
Wow! Nice digs and how neat that it's where you can watch!
That was an electricfying post ;)
