Eastern Bluebirds are such cheery little songbirds!  I especially enjoy seeing the brilliant blue apricot and buff-colored birds.  A neighbor has bird houses up and another couple of neighbors have nice bird feeders out.  The Eastern Bluebirds are insect-eating birds.  They enjoy treats of suet or meal worms.  Of course here in Florida there are a lot of insects ready to be hunted.  These are fantastic insect eaters!

The juvenile Eastern Bluebirds are surprisingly speckled instead of just being the main three colors.  Their little backs are blue and the blue gets brighter as they age.  They are little sweeties, for sure!  The males are much more vividly colored than the females as adults.

I took these pictures yesterday morning in my yard.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. Hello, I love the bluebirds. Years ago I had them nesting in my yard but the darn House Wren took over. The juvies are so cute with their speckled chest. Great photos. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week ahead!

    • Hi Eileen, Yes, the House Wrens and Carolina Wrens do move in and take over. I love the look of the juveniles – tender and so cute! Have a fantastic coming week!

  2. They sure are pretty! I see Bluebirds here quite often too, but they don’t nest near my house.

    • Hi Montucky, Yes, the Bluebirds are beautiful! Glad you also have them (Mountain?). Have a wonderful afternoon and evening. Thanks for your always appreciated comments!

  3. I guess when it’s all said and done, my all-time favorite birds are BLUEBIRDS… We have one nestbox and the Bluebirds are working on their 2nd family this season. Sometimes, they will have THREE…. I love watching them. They are such great parents to those sweet babies… AND–the Bluebirds are really neat and clean compared to other birds… Just LOVE ’em!!!!

    Hugs,
    Betsy
