Fall Bluebird

A fall visitor

We’ve had a pair or two of bluebirds visiting over the past couple of days and feeding on the bright red berries of the magnolia in our back garden. This fellow posed nicely for me on the roof of our woodshed. The fall colors at peak make for a nice background.

Bluebird!

Our first bluebird of the season!

No sooner had I cleaned out the nesting boxes in our front field this morning, than a male bluebird came to inspect! Welcome back!

Bluebirds are back!

The bluebirds are back! I was enjoying today’s warmth working in my “front office” (on the front porch) when I heard the distinctive burble of a bluebird. Grabbing my camera and long lens, I didn’t have to wait long before this pair came around to inspect one of the boxes we have in our front field. Hopefully they’ll stick around for the season!
