Next-door Neighbors

Yes, they really were perched on adjacent nest boxes (although the nest boxes weren't placed in nearby pairs, as is sometimes done to keep swallows from taking over all the bluebird boxes -- two swallow pairs won't tolerate each other that close, but they don't mind bluebirds, so if you place the nest boxes in pairs then half the nest boxes will go to bluebirds; whereas if you don't, none of them will). I took one liberty: I flipped the bluebird photo 180%.
