Default Mr. Bluebird's on my shoulder...

It's a fact! It's actual!

I drove over to Great Falls Park, VA early this morning before the inevitable millions of people show up and snapped a few shots. I was excited to get this little sequence of a bluebird coming back to it's nest. Really made me feel like spring has sprung!

Song of the South

They were nesting there. Here are a couple of shots of the mate bringing in materials. I sat there for about 45 minutes, just snapping away every time they came close.

Great shots. I miss my bluebirds this year. Something ate the male.

Great old movie. I used to love reading Brer Rabbit when I was a kid.
