Happily, this female Eastern Bluebird decided my front yard Magnolia Tree was a great place to perch and rest the other day. We have been having very rainy weather recently after having experienced a long period of drought.
The Eastern Bluebird is a great insect hunter! I am glad to have these beautiful small songbirds around. They like just about any insect or worm they can find. By the way, this lovely bird really blended-in with the green and rust coloration of the Magnolia. Nature’s camouflage. The male Eastern Bluebird has a much brighter tone to its color. I did not see the male on this occasion. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture. Enjoy!
