Bluebirds



  Bluebirds are one of my favorite yardbirds. This couple seems to be on their second nest and has found another house in my yard to use for their home. The male is such a pretty blue and seems to take great care of the female.











This is my mosaic for Mary's Mosaic Monday  Thank you Mary for hosting this fun meme.

And my post for  Blue Monday
Thank you Smiling Sally for hosting Blue Monday.

And thanks or stopping by to see my post and mosaic.

  1. Fabulous shots, Eileen! Blue birds are also my favorite and we just had a couple nesting in one of our houses. I thought they were usually done nesting by March, but I'm thrilled to see them regardless!
    Have a great week!

  3. Hi Eileen,

    That shot you captured where the bird is sitting on the hoop looking at you quizzically - priceless!

    And your header is a showstopper - those clouds all lined up!

  8. The male sure does stand out and adds a beautiful colour to your yard.
    Can't say I've seen any around here although there are bluebird houses on fenceposts at some of the farms.

  19. I have seen a lot of bluebird boxes out along the country roads here and last week I FINALLY saw my first bluebird. They are sooo cute. They are not that common here though with Global Warming people are talking about them more and more.
