Oh I LOVE bluebirds!! Matter of fact, I try to contribute to the Western Bluebird Society by keeping track of their comeback on the west coast. My BB nest boxes have sat empty for a few years, but I have my hopes alive.

Anyway, lovely shots of the beautiful little creatures!!

Saly,

Thanks they are among my favorite birds too, they are after all the bird of happiness :-)

I haven't done the nest boxes but a couple of my neighbors do, I just provide the suet all winter to keep them fed.

This is a set of the bluebird shots I have taken this year and last;

Nice shots. Always great when you can get both sexes to compare.
