Bluebird..Just maybe a sign of spring

To see more of  Wordless click hereWordless Wednesday






I noticed this pretty female bluebird land on my bluebird house this morning and then flew and landed on these wires. I looked out again and the male was perched on my car's antenna.

A small sign of spring for me...YEA!!!



Thanks to the host of Wordless Wednesday and for visiting my Wordless Wednesday  post.

Hi Eileen, Bluebirds are such nice little birds! Great picture! I think it is nice you have a Bluebird house. Have an excellent day today!

Hi Eileen, what a cute little guy. I sure hope this is a sign of spring for you. Thanks for your comments on my blog. We are surrounded by birdlife here in the Valley and it's fun and challenging to id them. Have a great day. Greetings from Jo

Hi Eileen, What a cute little Bluebird... I know you were excited.... Our critters seem to think it's spring here also. The Robins have been out in force, and our silly little chipmunks popped out of the ground from their winter's nap--thinking that spring had come...

Hugs,
Betsy

Good to see a sign of spring from your part of the world Eileen.
I drove past a massive array of Snowdrops today in full bloom ... just need the temperature to get above freezing!!

I badly needed a sign of spring! I do not think I've ever seen a female bluebird, my 1st thought was a nuthatch with its plumage?

Marice said...

Hi, All

the Pretty MALE bluebird was also seen today checking himself out in my cars side mirror. I wonder why the female was busy checking out the birdhouse and the male was busy looking at himself. Is there something wrong in this relaionship?

I saw one of these in the bog last week but didn't have my camera with me! As for spring, I think it will be a long time coming up here! I like your optimism though!

A refreshing sign I'm certain when the top photograph portrays such stubborn snow clinging to heavily laden branches weary with winter.

Carol said...

Eileen, your bluebird is so sweet! Bet it can't wait for spring, too :)

Ooh, I hope! I keep hearing tantalizing rumors that the wildflowers are finally blooming here but between a week of rain and now a sick kid I've been trapped inside for what feels like forever!

Wonderful shot of the little bluebird.

Harold Stiver said...

Nice, and like a lot of small bird species, I think the female has a more subtle beauty.

Denise said...

Spring indeed, a delightful photo Eileen. Such a pretty little bird. Have a great weekend.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

There couldn't possibly be a more perfect sign of Spring! Beautiful photo.

Barbara Selkirk said...

Eileen what a great photograph! Sometimes there are bluebirds that stick around this part of Central Ontario, but I haven't seen any this year... so you've brought me a taste of spring - something I won't see for at least two months. I'll be back to look at this wee bird again and again, a promise of spring. Thanks so much!
