This #bluebird was perched near this tree, possibly even on the same post, but the moment I snapped the shutter, it flew up to a nearby roof. So I tried to get a decent angle on it, and was about to walk away when it flew back to the tree, landing on this post, grooming itself for a few moments, and then stopping to look around.

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.

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.

I spotted a bluebird this Valentine’s Day morning. Seems appropriate.

Spotted in a tree at a city park. As I was trying to aim my camera, it flew down and landed on top of a birdhouse nearby, making it easier to see.

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!

Western #Bluebirds spotted on a hike at the nearby marsh preserve over the weekend. This was before my camera battery ran out of power and I was stuck finishing out the hike with my phone. (I still can’t believe I forgot to bring the spare.)
