I saw a *lot* of different birds on a walk in the park yesterday. Here are two Western Bluebirds – one male and amazingly bright blue, the other either female or a juvenile male. I’m not happy with the image noise on the first one, but I *really* like the way the second one came out.

A very bright blue bird perched on a cable, looking away from the camera to the right, with blurry green leaves behind it.

A small brown and orange bird on a narrow, mostly bare branch with a few leaves starting to poke out.

Some bluebirds spotted at a park

Some #bluebirds spotted at a park. There’s a corner that’s landscaped with plants that are a bit better suited for more birds and butterflies than the usual giant lawn with a few trees, and I’ve seen bluebirds, phoebes, towhees and others in the area.

I’m not sure if they’re female or juvenile (only adult males are bright bright blue), but you can see the blue on their wings…and how well their bodies blend in with the ground.

Saw a ton of mallards and geese as usual for Madrona Marsh, plus a bunch of bluebirds. Discovered I’m not very good at taking pictures of dragonflies unless they’ve paused somewhere for longer than a few seconds.

Also spotted several monarch butterflies – see my comments on dragonflies!
