Bird Photography Weekly # 59

Male Eastern bluebird.....That's My world follows this post



I have been lucky to have a pair of Eastern bluebirds nesting in my yard. They are one of my favorite birds. It seems to be a more common bird now thanks to all the birdhouses that are provided for them.

I am new to the Weekly Bird photography and feel a little out of place being an amateur photographer. But I just love the birds and enjoy all of your pictures.

  7. He is just breathtaking. If I were a lady bird I would swoon. The colors are so gorgeous. I've never seen colors in nature like this on a bird.

  12. Welcome to Bird Photography Weekly Eileen! Great shot of the Eastern Bluebird!

    I am a Bluebird fancier myself and, if memory serves, the Western Bluebird was my first BPW post. I monitor three bluebird trails in California and the breeding season is my favorite time of year. Watching the birds court, choose their home, build their nest and raise their young is so rewarding.

  13. Nice sharp, clean perched and clear bokeh. Your PowerShot SX10 sure can catch birds.

  14. You're so lucky to have nesting bluebirds in your yard, and you have a gorgeous shot of a bluebird here! You shouldn't feel out of place at all. I'm amateur too...and I found the best thing about birders and bird photographers is they are so nice and helpful and just love birds!!

  20. Welcome to BPW :)

    I'm "only" an Amateur in both fields myself. But hey, as long as it's fun ;)

    That's a beautiful bird and a lovely shot to go along with it.
    I don't think, I've seen a Bluebird yet, so thanks, for showing me one :)!

  25. Lovely photo--we get a lot of cardinals and the occasional Oriole, but haven't seen this one, so pretty! We like watching birds too, through the kitchen window.

    That's a beautiful shot, Eileen.

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is my blog about the birds I see, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They might not always be the best of photos because I like to keep photos as a record of where and when I see them.
I appreciate all your comments and I will always try to return the favor and visit your blog.

Due to some recent problems I will not be able to publish any comments that include a link. I would appreciate if you do not include any kind of links in your comments. Sorry!
Have a great day, Eileen
