Once a week Ron Jensen hops on his Mule (4-wheeled, not 4-legged) and runs his route through Park Rapids.

He checks the 44 bluebird houses he has scattered throughout the city.

Forty-nine babies and counting.

And that's not including the chickadees.

"Gee there must be 25 or 30 of the little buggers," Jensen said. "They have seven, eight, nine" at a time.
