Eastern Bluebird

Posted on Feb 22, 2015

Some people are lucky enough to have Eastern Bluebirds (Sialia sialis) spend the winter feeding at their home, nibbling on mealworms and other goodies put out by caring birders. Did I say that with as little jealousy as possible? I hope so. The rest of us have to wait until March for the species to start making a move towards the north, and soon you will be able to enjoy views like this one as our days continue to get longer and brighter. I remember taking this photo on a particularly cold day, with the lion-like wind battering me, but we can pretend it was a temperate and calm, lamb-like March afternoon.
