Wordless Wednesday: Bluebird

Eastern Bluebird

Almost wordless: The Bluebirds are hard at work constructing a nest. The male brings the nest material to the female who does the actual building and arranges it to her liking inside the box.

    I was about to say ‘building a nest?’ and then read your comment. We have a bird next on top of our hanging porch light for the second year in a row. We kind of sighed when we saw it. Made our front port a mess with bird poop. But, there it is. What can you do? LOL

      But they are so much fun to watch. I have a nest box on the front of my garage and the babies are chirping and pooping out the door already!

    You caught the perfect shot. 🙂 I can’t get so close though, They always fly away lol

      That was taken with a 250mm zoom lens. If I got much closer they would have flow away.

    This is one ambitious bird! Obviously wants to make as few trips back and forth as possible to build his home. 🙂

    Perfectly wordless.

    Thank you. Something about the timeless purpose behind this photo of a bluebird in spring makes the image especially moving.

    Awesome capture!

    As usual your close up is stunning. You manage to capture such dynamic shots – I’m assuming there arelots of duds to get this one amazing shot 🙂

      I took about a dozen shots and most were good. It’s when the bird is in a tree or moving around that I end up with about ten duds to one good one.

    so neat! Thought of you today, we went to Danada. Have you been there recently? About 15 nests I think in the rookery, not 60 like 3 year go, but the babies are growing fast. It was a great birding day. We even saw a hummingbird posing on a dead tree, for quite a while (at the entrance of the path to the rookery), also catbird, song sparrow, common yellow-throats, yellow warblers, kingbird and bobolinks! I had not seen a bobolink in IL for a long time. At one point, a bobolink and a kingbird perched next to each other on the same little bush, it was so unreal. Unfortunately I only had binoculars and my phone, which has a very bad zoom. Several kingbirds and bobolinks on the path between markers #10 and #11. Because we discovered the rookery thanks to you, I wanted to share this great birding day with you

      Thanks! The past two weekends have been good birding for me too. I haven’t been to the Rookery this year and didn’t know that the number of nests were down that low. The rookery at Churchill was abandoned last year when the main tree fell down in a winter storm. Now I’m wondering where they all went.
