Bluebird

 Eastern Bluebird (Sialla sialis)

Some birds don't stick around long enough for me to take a decent shot, but this female bluebird was a natural model waiting for me to go away so it could back into her nest.

Another pose (but keeping its eye on me)

I am connecting to Stewart M's Wild Bird Wednesday HERE

Gorgeous tack sharp photos! The Bluebird is Missouri's state bird! Love the first snap because I love little bird feeties!

Oh,and you have probably been asked this 4011 times, but what are you shooting with?

Beautiful shots! My Gran used to say that bluebirds were loved by fairies, because bluebirds would let fairies hitch a ride.

Pamela Gordon said...

Very nice captures CG. My Bluebird box is empty and I'm hoping I might lure one in to nest before the season is over.

Kate said...

A great little model! Her blue feathers are such wonderful features on that charmer. You take lovely photos!!

Rose said...

Oh, how I wish I had taken these! Some of the best bluebird shots ever.

I have never thought that having one of these fly up my nose would make me happy. (I hope this reference makes sense to you :) )

Ginny said...

These are perfect shots, like he really is posing! Whenever I see them, they are never still long enough for me to snap.

Birdman said...

Got bluebird nests up at the garden. I try to keep them happy.

Such feather detail in your pics, EG! Super.
I hope your husband continues to improve.

Esther Joy said...

Great shots! I am blessed to have a family of them in a birdhouse on a pine tree by our farmhouse in the country, ...but they are a little shy, also!

Maggid said...

What a sweet little one, and I just love their colors!

Christian Weiß said...

A very beautiful bird and great photos.

Debbie said...

Absolutely stunning!! The light in this image is just beautiful!!

Jenny said...

Not as flashy as the males but very beautiful in her more subdued colours. We only very occasionally see them here in eastern Ontario. It's a real treat when we do, so thanks for the photos.

Gail Dixon said...

Beautiful and sharp shots of this female. I have never been able to get good ones of the male or female. Congrats!

Janie said...

She's a good mama, looking out for her young. Lovely photos! How nice that her vigilance went hand in hand with good photos.

The bluebird is a gorgeous bird and one of my favorites.. Great shots.

Adam Jones said...

Brilliant photos and closeups. What a neat looking bird.

Stephanie said...

Very nice indeed!

Indrani said...

Excellent shots!

BumbleVee said...

A stunner!

edenhills said...

These are amazing shots! I struggle to get good shots that aren't horribly cropped. Wanting to return to the nest is a good incentive though.

Chris Rohrer said...

I so love when they pose:) Bluebirds are not only difficult to approach, they also are difficult for the camera and I don't know why! I have okay shots of the Western, but could do better with my Eastern and Mountain Bluebirds. All of them are stunners!

Viola said...

What a lovely bird! In some way it has got a sad look.. ;)

kelley jensen said...

such a pretty little bird

Jack said...

I am glad that you are out and catching birds again.

Gunilla Bäck said...
