This female Eastern Bluebird was nice enough to sit there and give me several poses.
Blackbirds & Thrushes
Eastern Bluebird female
I finally saw a female, fledgling and make today. Male said no photos please. But the other 2 said sure. Your photos are awesome.
I couldn’t figure out what kind of bird was nesting in my birdhouse. So, I took a photograph and Google searched it. Eastern Bluebird appeared on the screen. What was nesting in my birdhouse sure didn’t look like those photis of very blue colored birds!
Then I noticed several sub- categories above the pictures. One was titaled “female” . When I clicked it, lots of photographs of female Eastern Bluebirds appeared. I scrolled through them until I saw an absolutely exact match of the little bird flying in and out of my homemade gourd birdhouse! It was your picture that nailed down this bird’s identity !
Thank you so much for your help!
If you can correct my typos, I certainly would appreciate it.
1. photos…not photis
2….sure didn’t look like those photis of very blue colored birds!
…sure didn’t look like those photos of the very blue colored birds!
Thank you so much! I don’t want to make your sight look bad!
I live in the city. Didn’t think I would ever see a bluebird around here, but both males and females are appearing! Why do the males of almost every species have to be so dang beautiful?
