All Too Familiar

As the Pres and I sat outside in our rockers enjoying the late afternoon sun, the melodic tune seemed to fill the yard.  Looking in the direction of the sound, there he was...perched on the nesting box.

Looking around the yard for her, my eyes skimming the trees, I couldn't find her.  Meanwhile, he kept singing.  Finally, I spotted her.  There she was...at the feeders.



Balancing effortlessly as the gentle wind moved the baffles to and fro, she hopped from baffle to baffle, occasionally pecking at the caged suet.  She looked happy.  

  Pointing him and her out to the Pres who was engrossed in his paper, I wondered how many more would come since we have several bluebird boxes.

The song continued and the all too familiar melody made me happy too.
  Yes, that is why they are know as the Bluebirds of happiness!

Do you get Bluebirds in your neck of the woods?

How adorable! We DO have bluebirds around here, and many have the boxes for them, even our next door neighbor. But I have never been able to snap a picture, they are very very shy!

Yep, we sure do. Have some year round, but more come spring and summer. Love those little guys.

Yes, several friends have had bluebirds in their yards, but we have never put up a birdhouse so none have visited here. Yours is a beauty.

Great photos! As you know we do have Bluebirds here in our corner of VA. They are one of my favorites, and I've been seeing them--However, another favorite is the Eastern Phoebe, which has yet to return, any day now, I hope.

Look at those sweet eyes and wonderful color! We get such a great variety of birds at our lakehouse. Unfortunately, I'm severely hearing impaired, so I identify their locations with my binoculars. I can sometimes vaguely hear a lot of cheeping and song...just can't locate where it's coming from!

I'm hoping to get a zoom lens for my camera. Until then I will enjoy your beautiful pictures!

XO,
Jane

How pretty they both are! We don't have bluebirds here in New Zealand so these are a treat!

what a sweet picture. I have never seen one here but I know we get them. It's also possible that I've seen one and didn't know what it was...lol
