The Bluebirds are Back!


Eastern Bluebirds have returned to the back yard area next door to my home.  The family has a Bluebird house up which was used by a couple of the Eastern Bluebirds this past Spring.  I think that these birds were the same that were raised here but had been away due to the presence of the former resident Sharp-shinned Hawk.  That hawk was chased away by a huge flock of Crows about two weeks ago.

The Eastern Bluebird male is the brighter of the two.  The males also seem to be a bit rounder in shape.  The female is a more light steel-blue in color.  Both are keen insect hunters.  Having these beautiful birds around is really nice!  I took these pictures on October 9, 2013.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
