Eastern Bluebird



I've seen a couple of eastern bluebirds at my feeder lately. They are such pretty little birds. I hope they'll stay.



I also hope you'll enjoy this bonus video. It's not really for the image, but for the sounds. These are the birds I hear in the morning when I sleep with the window open. I'm not really sure which birds they are, but they make a wonderful alarm clock!

PS: Heute, bin ich Geburtstagkind!

photo et son, superbe. Il est beau ton oiseau bleu (cela fait penser à un conte mais j'ai zappe le nom de l'écrivain, pas bien de vieillir ;o) )

Hello! I'm stopping by for a little while today but still on sabbatical. The bird looks very alert!

The first photo is one of the best you have posted. I have distracted from work all my colleagues playing the sound of your video in our office...

VP: I miss my birdies! It's funny that you say this is one of my best photos though. All I do for these bird pics is set up the camera, let it do the work and then crop the photos before posting. I've had some really good results though. It's fun to see what's in your backyard. :D

They sound wonderful! Thank you for including the audio with the picture!

I'm a little confused by Google Translate's translation: "Today, I am birthday boy!"

It's your birthday? And you're a boy?? :D

Hilda: Today is my birthday, but I'm not a boy! Kind literally means child in German, but that's what people say when it's your birthday. :D

Happy Birthday! A big slice of Cyber-Cake is headed your way.

I love the bluebird picture! The audio sounds like there might be a mockingbird out there. It's beautiful. Thanks for posting it!

'Tis a beautiful bird. I don't think we have any here, but we have lots of bluejays!

My greeting's late then, but HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope your photo today means you're spending the weekend out of town, golfing! ;)
