I shot this fellow last weekend, but I have no idea what he is. I have heard that this might just be a common bluebird. Still, I have never seen him before. Also, I have no clue what type of bug that might be in his mouth.

That's a pretty nice photograph Darrell1! I can't tell what the insect is in the bird's mouth either. You were correctly told that this was a bluebird, a very drab female Eastern Bluebird to be exact.

Good shot.

The bug appears to be a very squashed Cricket upside down. I lightened it up a little and you can make out the legs and also the two little probs coming off the back end.

Very nice shot Darrell1.

To me you got the exposure on the bird just right to really show off the colors.

Yep, that is one squashed bug!

Thanks for the comments. As I look at other shots of her, it's obvious it's a yummy cricket. Here are a couple more:
