    Ah, Eliza, one of my favorite birds. Sadly their populations are way down around here, due to 13 years of exceptional drought. We had rain this year, so maybe they will come back. I miss them. We have the mountain bluebirds and the western bluebirds, which are almost identical to the eastern. Thank you for this beautiful photograph that fills my heart this morning.

    What a pretty little bird – the blue is SO bright! I don’t think I have ever actually seen a bluebird, not that I recall anyway. I just checked your bird website and I see that I could have seen a western bluebird, had I been paying attention.

  8. Such a gorgeous color Eliza, you capture the beauty in nature. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh so beautiful! I haven’t got a chance to attract one to my yard … or do I? I have to try. I saw a house that has a unique entrance that is supposed to be unappealing to house sparrows. I certainly have plenty of bugs and a “runway.” Cross your fingers! I finally saw a bluebird – it was in Florida.

      They really like wide open fields best, for some reason (maybe they like grasshoppers?) and they nest in the neighbor’s fields. Occasionally, they pop over for a quick visit, always a treat!

  10. I love the colors you always get in your images- such depth

    What delights me is the contrast between the giant creepy skeletal fingers of trees and the vulnerable innocence of the bird with its lovely soft colors and brave stance. Wonderful photograph! Full of hope.
