World Bird Wednesday - Mountain Bluebird

This guy was hanging out at the Chicken Dance Ranch this weekend. I couldn't get a picture of Momma Bluebird, but Dad sure was cooperative.

What a gorgeous bird Sallie! Thank you for introducing me to the Mountain bluebird this fine day. It seems there is no end to my lack of knowledge when it comes to Western birds!

Blues are my all time favorite Sally and you've captured this Mountain Bluebird perfectly! What can I say, it just doesn't get any better than this!

Really cool! We've got Western Bluebirds here - and have a couple bird houses set up for them - with multiple generations using them now. At least we assume it's multiple generations. I've got a video of a male feeding a female a couple weeks ago out on my youtube page.

Pat Ulrich said...

What a lovely bird -- really wonderful shot!

Mike B. said...

Gorgeous! Love bluebirds- I wish they visited my yard.

Victoria said...

What a beauty... a wonderful capture! I've seen them in flight (on frequent visits out west) but have yet to see one land and pose for me! (found you from WBW where I'm still browsing from this past week's crop of images)
