A New Home for the Eastern Bluebird

dsc_0459

This male Eastern Bluebird was busy inspecting out a potential new home for itself and probably its mate.  The cozy tiny space was likely pecked-out by a busy woodpecker some weeks or months ago up in the heights of my backyard Live Oak Tree.  Winter is approaching and the bluebirds are eager to have their warm dry home.  I took these pictures yesterday, November 3, 2016.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!

Bluebird on the Porch Railing

This handsome Eastern Bluebird was sitting on the railing of my front porch the other day.  It likely was trying to catch itself a meal of a tasty flying insect or spider on the porch.  I took the pictures from my living room window and was fairly away from the glass because I did not want to startle the bird.  It is rare to see these Bluebirds on the porch at all.  They are flighty and don’t come around the house much.  I think that having seen several other birds come to the nearby feeder may have also inspired this little bluebird to take a chance on being up on that railing.  I took these pictures on Jan. 21, 2013 in the morning.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

The Beauty of Bluebirds

About six Eastern Bluebirds live here in my yards.  I don’t see them every time I am outside but I see them maybe every-other day.  The male is a short chubby bright orange and blue and creamy-white fellow.  The female is a bit more slender with the same colors but the colors are not as vibrant.  These wonderful small songbirds eat insects.  They like to hunt for insects and grubs and worms in the large pastures here.  The Eastern Bluebirds most often perch on the lower branches of the Oaks here but also love to hang out on the electric lines.  These are really attractive birds.  I so enjoy seeing them here.   I took these pictures this past week in my yards.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger photo.  Enjoy!
