Searching For Bluebirds

A swallow peeks out of it's new home

Red-winged Blackbird 
I like watching the roof grow on this picnic shelter.
A male perches 
And trades places with a female
Yes, this should work fine, the kids are old enough to stay a bit on their own.





The male returns to this nest bringing a treat for those within.

  2. Hi Steve - love the picnic roof ... how wonderful you've got one close at hand and can therefore see it growing. Those birds are just beautiful .. the red scarlet feathered scar just showing how magnificent the blackbird must be in flight ... then the blue-birds aren't they amazing (well for us!) ... cheers Hilary

  3. Looks like someone's going to have to mow that roof before long. :) I love your bluebird shots. I saw several bluebirds yesterday but couldn't get a clear camera shot of them to save my life.

  4. beautiful pictures. while I would spy my bluebirds now and then, mostly they were perched too high for a good photo. they raised one brood but I guess they decided that the nosy human was a problem because they haven't returned.

  6. These are great photos. Our bluebirds appear to be gone. I didn't see the babies launch, so I'm hoping they are okay.
    I miss red-winged blackbirds. You don't see them in the south.

  7. It is a fun and difficult task to get the birds to stay still long enough to get a good picture. These show your patience.

  10. I really like the pictures of the birds peeping their heads out of the bird boxes. That's one of the things I look for whenever I'm at a nature park.
