Eastern Bluebird

Quite a few years ago a friend gave us two bluebird nesting boxes. Last week was only the second time in all of those years that we’ve actually seen bluebirds in the boxes.  I was unable to get very close but was able to take a few photos of one male Eastern Bluebird.

    1. Thank you! Unfortunately, they decided not to nest here, and I haven’t seen them since I took these photos.
