Happily I saw several beautiful Eastern Bluebirds flitting around several nearby homes in my back yard area.  I live in a neighborhood of row houses so the back yard areas are fairly open.  One neighbor has a bird feeder and a nice wooden patio fence where the Bluebirds like to perch.  In a touching scene, a Father Bluebird was tenderly feeding an older juvenile a tasty morsel of caterpillar.  I also saw one of the Bluebirds perched low in the large Sycamore Tree in my own back yard.  The trees are just now filling out with their new leaves.

Male Bluebirds are the more brightly colored of the genders.  The juveniles tend to be more on the brownish-side until they are nearly fully grown.  The Bluebirds are wonderful insect catchers!  These royal blue, orange and buff-colored birds are interesting to watch, useful, and rather happy birds.  I am over-joyed to see them here!  I took these pictures on March 30, 2013 in my back yard.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
