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.

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!

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!

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.

The bluebirds would nest along the fence rows on the farm when I was a young girl. It has been years since I have seen one. Thanks for sharing yours.

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.

GrandmaK said...

Bluebirds are so allusive around here. I have maybe seen one or two in my lifetime. They are a beautiful bird. Valerie

LV said...

Nature seems to find a way to present us with lovely blue birds for blue day. I love all your photos.

Joyful said...

How heartwarming to see all the photos of the lovely birds in blue. I can never seem to get good shots of birds close up and nor do we have quite the variety coming to stop at my patio in the city.

Debbie said...

That is a beautiful bird indeed, such a pretty mosaic too.

Mary Howell Cromer said...

The images that you chose for the two collages on this page are both just splendid captures of some of natures loveliest gifts. Well done~

Dragonfly Treasure said...

Love your mosaic! Wish we had Blue birds here, they're so pretty

Gavin said...

They're beautiful! I think there are bluebirds in eastern Washington, but we don't see them here on Puget Sound. I saw a goldfinch this morning, though.

Elaine said...

I always love your mosaics, and this one is lovely. We don't get the bluebirds here. Sigh....

Kirigalpoththa said...

SquirrelQueen said...

Bluebirds are one of my favorites but I never see them in this area. Great shots of this beautiful little bird.

Eileeen, I'm just green with envy for your fantastic bluebirds. I love the collage.
