    Is that at your house recently?? Bluebirds in January?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      I had at least half a dozen eating the last of my winterberry this morning. I’ve also seen them eating the holly out front. There are plenty of berries for them all winter around here, mostly bittersweet and multiflora rose…whose seeds, of course, they disperse! I see them up in the field across the street all year ’round. I love listening their burbling call.
      Also, there was a large flock of robins in the same field this afternoon. It felt like March instead of January!

  3. I can almost feel the breeze…lovely Eliza

    I like the contrast of the bird with its soundings.

    So that’s a bluebird is it? Reminds me of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16rTnPQDf_8

  17. Christina says:

    That surprised me! Wow! That is colourful.

  19. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Very pretty fellow!

  20. Peter/Outlaw says:

    The image is stunning and that’s one handsome bird! What happened to “Gone away is the bluebird, here to stay is a new bird. He sings a love song as we go along walking in a winter wonderland?”

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Climate change I guess, or adaptation to a ready food supply. We see robins and bluebirds all winter. Our harbingers of spring are redwing blackbirds these days.

  21. albert says:

    No words needed! All fail me here.

  22. Very pretty … Is he a rarity for you?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you. No, actually they are pretty common in rural areas, a species of least concern. However, they prefer open pasture, which is diminishing in my area. They used to migrate south, but have adapted to stick around all winter, mostly feeding on the berries of invasive species. The upside to such controversies. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  23. Brenda says:

    Gorgeous, gorgeous shot. Don’t you love seeing the bluebirds in the middle of winter? They stripped my winterberries a month ago! They will be hitting up the sumac next. We will be putting up a few more birdhouses this spring, we so enjoyed watching the bluebirds and swallows last year.

  24. Trail Walker says:

    I love the bluebird, but I think he may have had the wrong travel agent. He should have gone south until the weather improved! Nevertheless, it’s an excellent picture for Wordless Wednesday.

  25. One word came to mind when I saw this picture: brilliant.

  26. ladyfi says:

    What a gorgeous rainbow bird!

  27. I generally adore the amazement and pleasure when I take a gander at your photos

  28. Beautiful bluebird Eliza, you are lucky to catch one with your camera ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Beautiful! I love these birds!

  30. Maria F. says:
