Bluebirds!

We has dem! Honest to goodness bluebirds -- not jays, bluebirds! Yesterday, three of them perched on the fence posts, hunting. They'd watch the ground for a bit, then dive down and then fly back up to the post with a tasty morsel. I must have sat there with my binoculars for twenty minutes, enchanted.

I do not, however, have any photos of them; my camera just can't zoom that far. I'm hoping Santa will remedy that problem, but he may be tapped out by then. Dang.

Vicki, It is wonderful that you saw some bluebirds. They usually migrate south for winter but if you put up bluebird houses next spring they might come a stay for the summer and breed there.
Blessings, Grace :)
