Bluebird by mydigitalmind Bluebird by mydigitalmind
Even though Bluebirds are not new to my yard (they visited this past January) today was the first time I noticed them on my feeders. A male and female showed up for less than a minute, grabbed some seeds and moved on. Luck was on my side because I was paying attention to my feeders at that very moment, counting birds for FeederWatch. Shot through my sliding glass doors.

Really nice shot Melissa. I had a bunch of them feeding at the fields edge this morning, but they didn't stay very long.

Gorgeous! I love the shallow depth of field and the colours in the background against the bird's plumage. I know you requested C&C but I have nothing negative to say. XD You must keep your sliding glass door very clean! I've done that too, but clearly I need to take some Windex to the windows! Haha.
