I've never heard that poem, Mole. I'll have to remember it if and when I see my first bluebirds of the spring. This is always a difficult time for me. I like New England's harsh and cold winters -- until about mid-February. At this point I've been shoveling snow, sprinkling sand, and hauling firewood for long enough. (Why is it that a load of firewood is so much heaver than it was 25 years ago?) We still have a lot of winter yet to go, and your photos of bluebirds really brightened things up.

Love the bluebird pic's they look much nicer than the one's we have in Mi. but I go out of my way not to shoot the vultures down in Florida, just too many down here and they just are not very photogenic, maybe it's just me

Wonderful shots of the Bluebirds and I guess the vultures are a necessary species that only their mothers could love.

MtnMan - Gad you enjoyed our bright little feathered friends. We have resident bluebirds here year-round, plus many of the northern ones migrate here for the winter. So we actually have more bluebirds in winter than in summer. Sure hope and pray your difficult winter thaws soon...

Hans - So glad you liked the little "fellers," and tolerated the bigger ones!

Lou - Yeah, maybe not as cute as the bluebirds, but sure do serve a useful purpose (and their own special brand of "cuteness.")
