Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

I took these pictures of an Eastern Bluebird sitting on the electric line next to my house on October 17, 2012.  We still have a flock of Eastern Bluebirds here in spite of the fact that most of the leaves are now off of the trees.  These insect-eaters have been swooping around the yard catching all manner of small gnats and bugs in the  air and on the grass.  They also keep the flies in check which is important since there is a herd of cattle just across the pond.  These are useful, very beautiful birds and I am glad they are here!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. He is sitting pretty, great shots!

  2. we had our first frost here this morning, so i’m afraid some of the insect eaters might be on their way south, soon.

    • Hi Theresa, It is quite cold here. I don’t think it will snow today though. So far, I saw about a hundred American Coots on a large lake about two miles away from my home. Maybe more waterfowl will arrive soon and maybe even a Bald Eagle or two. The Bluebirds will maybe stay around. Have a wonderful day today!

  3. They are so pretty and perky! It must be very nice to have them around al winter.
