The Beauty of Bluebirds

When not in the trees nesting, the Eastern Bluebirds here are on the hunt for their meals.  They soar and swoop or just get tired and perch on the electric line or other handy place for a moment.  They are busy!  Nesting is hard work.  Soon there also will be little hungry mouths to feed in the nests.  The Eastern Bluebirds are gorgeous little birds.  They are electric blue, orange, and ivory-white.  They are alert, and intelligent birds.  They are insect-eaters and hunt in the grass, on the leaves of shrubbery and in the trees.  They are wonderful to see and listen-to.  I really enjoy them a lot!  I took these pictures on April 12, 2012 and also yesterday, in my yard.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. Our Bluebirds are doing something this year I have not seen them do before. They are taking suet from one of my feeders —and taking it back to the nest to feed their babies…I love watching them go back and forth all day long it seems. They are fabulous parents. Can’t wait to see the babies poking their little heads out of the nestbox….

    Have a great day, Linda.

  3. They certainly are pretty! They look very much like the western ones we have here. Much deeper blue than the Mountain Bluebirds.

  4. Love these little bluebirds! Nice captures!
