The End IS In Sight



Saying good-bye to Winter soon means the Eastern Bluebirds that wintered over will be happy.



Gone will be the days of sitting on icy branches in the driving snow.




Gone will be the forlorn looks and snowy roofs on nearby houses.







 Gone will be the frozen feet clasping to slippery surfaces, although a few more weeks of picking at suet might be necessary,








Yes, the end is in sight.

We saw our first rocky mountain bluebirds last Friday! But then we didn't have a winter.....

Love him, what a cutie. And I'm very glad he will soon be warm.

We're having a mild day here in NB which makes one fell alive as I see the snow melting down so fast and hear the water running in the gutters. Makes me happy. I know it's not over (winter that is) but it soon will be. I hope those little bluebirds survive.

It is, surely for us, and I hope it lasts. These little darlings are making the best of it. Very sweet.

Pondside said...

Yes, spring will truly arrive!! I often think that it so much more appreciated after a hard winter. If so, then your appreciation will be sky high!

Ginny said...

Oh , they look so miserable in these pictures! One wonders how something so tiny and delicate can survive in the harsh weather. So they do not migrate??

Ann Thompson said...

The bluebirds won't be the only ones that will be happy. I'm just glad I don't have to live outside like they do

Frank said...

Tough little birds. I'm sure they will be delighted when the snow disappears.

Barmy March weather over here JP but I guess it won't last for long!!

Barb said...

Those bluebirds look a little water-logged! I hope you and the Pres are feeling better.

Sweet little birds. They were lucky to find all those goodies in your yard.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Great bird shots! I have some tulips coming up here, which gives me hope :-)

And like the bluebirds we also hope the end to winter will be in sight once we get past this weekend's forecast of possibly wintry weather (again).

Awww..I could almost feel their tiny freezing little feeties! Yes..the end has to be in sight. What a Winter it has been for all of you out there. Isn't Spring beginning this very weekend..(coming up?)
We never had a Winter really, but we could look to our high mountain peaks around us and see the snow..
From a distance it is beautiful.
Hugs,
Mona

I bet the bird (and humans) will be very happy. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my ATV post. - Margy

Aw, they look so cold. :(
Still, the color looks stunning. What lovely creatures.

Nicola SeaThreePeeO Carpenter said...

What beautiful little birds. Will they be leaving you? I would miss them terribly.

Chris Rohrer said...

True:) But when you live in a place that's practically eternal summer, snow sounds pretty nice. And I can't wait to play in the snow on my spring break:) I hope it doesn't melt too quickly:)

What a beautiful little bird. Rather reminds me of our blue wrens but in their case water would be their biggest need in our hot summers.
It's still difficult for me to imagine all that snow and what it entails for everyone.
