BLUE BIRDS ARE HERE. CAN HAPPINESS BE FAR BEHIND? Marilyn Armstrong

I kept wondering why I never saw a bluebird. Ever. Not here or in New York. And I know they live here. This morning I got up and looked out my back windows and the deck was full of bluebirds!

And the Chickadee is about to take off!

  2. We see Blue jays but not Bluebirds, and there’s definitely a difference in size and disposition. 🙂

  3. If ever you needed a bluebird of happiness it would be today. How lucky you are to get a whole deck full of them.

    • Thet only came twice when we bought some very special bird food — it looked exactly like trail mix and I think we could have eaten it. They apparently liked all those bits of cashews and other nuts and fruits. But the price went back up and we can’t afford it now. They are picky eaters.

  4. Aw! ❤ You might wish to tag or inform Bluebird of Bitterness. He might find it amusing that his relatives discovered the 'all you can eat' buffet at the Armstrong home! 😆 DARLING birdies..and I also saw the 'orange with a hint of mauve' breast. Are those boy birds or girl birds or do bluebirds differ based on gender?

    • The females look like a faded version of the boys.

      How blue they look is a matter of how the light hits them. They can look quite gray sometimes and their chest coloring can be anything from brick red to bright orange. I had good, flat but bright lighting the days i took these pictures, so they were in pretty good color.

  6. Silly me, I always assumed bluebirds were just blue. I guess I’ve never seen one either…

  7. I don’t remember seeing bluebirds with brown on them.

    • It’s not brown. It’s orange. The colors on monitors is not always consistent, but it is orange with a hint of mauve. There is no other bird that looks like that. I should add that different light changes that color. When the single one is standing on the rail, the dark red reflects back on him. Birds are creatures of light.
