    This is special.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Anne. These are some of our prettiest birds and are early nesters. It checked out the bird box, but I think they prefer a bigger open area, like my neighbor’s pasture where I see them frequently.

  4. So sweet Eliza. I saw one a few weeks ago, but it didn’t sit still long enough to have its picture taken. Thanks so much for sharing. I needed that on this gloomy, rainy day. At least it’s going to get very warm.

  5. What a little beauty!

  6. Lovely! He’s asking, “Eliza, where’s Spring?” ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. What a wonderful visitor you have there to perk your spirits right up.

    Reblogged this on Blue Dragon Journal.

    Bluebirds are so adorable! Now Louis Armstrong’s song will be playing in my head a l l d a y ! Will be teaching that to my grand daughter!

  10. Nice Eliza! Always fun to see a Bluebird!

    He looks like he’s not worried in the least about the coronavirus.

  12. Thanks for sharing the beautiful bluebird, I had to smile at the wonderful woods in the background and his choice of enjoying the deck!

  13. Such a cheerful sight! We don’t have bluebirds around our house. Too much in the woods, I suppose.

    What a fortuitous shot!

  15. How nice to have a bluebird of happiness on your deck. I had vultures…not sure what that means.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Haha, your comment made me laugh. I looked up their symbolism: ‘As a symbol, Turkey vulture represents strength, perceptiveness, wisdom and seriousness.’ Not too bad!

  16. Kris Peterson says:

    A symbol of serenity amongst the chaos.

    What an exquisite little bird. (The woodland/forest background is lovely too.)

  18. Val Boyko says:

    One of the best sightings in early Spring! Do you have a bluebird box Eliza?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, it is! There is a nest box in upper left of the photo. The pair did check it out, but I guess it wasn’t to their liking. My neighbor up the road usually gets bluebirds in his fields, but I think my yard might not be big or open enough for them. That box has hosted wrens and chickadees, so at least there is that.

      • Val Boyko says:

        We used to get swallows in our box … very entertaining. Bluebirds can be quite fussy. They came here for years and then simply stopped showing up. Other people have been putting up boxes in better situations, so I can’t blame them! They are delightful though ๐Ÿ’•

  19. Love this adorable bluebird. ๐Ÿ˜

    Why hello there sweet little creature, such a beauty! โค I had an unusual dream about bluebirds the other night and it really left me contemplating what the meaning of it could be. I never came up with anything, but now seeing this cute little one may set me on the path of doing some more digging… ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Cathy says:

    Lovely to see him. I find the birds going about their business at the moment hugely comforting. Take care!

  24. Adele Brand says:

    So pretty! I used to love seeing bluebirds on my Canadian travels.

  25. My favorite songbird. Not only are they cute but they are nice to all the other birds too. We had boxes in NJ and now we see both Mountain and Western Bluebirds here. I put up a box and they look but others who are more aggressive always win out. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Bluebirds are such beauties. Here, tree swallows vie for nest boxes, but with lots of older trees and snags, there are lots of sites for cavity nesters.
