Congratulations to our BirdSpotter Judges’ Choice winner, Dan Vickers, for this stunning photo of a Western Bluebird! Dan noted that he saw this bird on the Bell Rock Trail in Sedona, Arizona.
Western Bluebirds are mainly insectivorous in the summer and they can be attracted to feeders if you offer mealworms. Look for them on low perches in woodlands and woodland edges, particularly if there are winter berries nearby, such as elderberry, grapes, serviceberry, sumac, or juniper.
Monday, November 26, is the first day to submit a photo to the BirdSpotter category Chickadees and Titmice Only. Submit any photo of a bird in the Chickadee and Titmouse family! Biweekly People’s Choice and Judges’ Choice winners receive prizes from the Cornell Lab and our sponsor, Wild Birds Unlimited. Anyone can participate by entering a photo and voting for their favorites. Find out more about the BirdSpotter contest.
