Oh my goodness - cuter than cute! They are so adorable. What enchanting visitors :)
Great shots! But why is he so pretty and she so plain???Carolyn
omg, Sweet Bay ~ you've outdone yourself again with these pics!!!! That last one is certifiably print & frame material! They are adorable and you're so right about the bright color of the males. They always make me think "tropical" ~ does that make sense?
Beautiful. I've been looking for them here lately, but they aren't coming around. I had babies in a house last year. I hope they show up soon.
Wow! What beautiful pictures. Bluebirds are the one bird I most want to see in person. We have them in the mountains here, but they are still pretty uncommon. I can't believe the blue of the male, but the female is just as sweet.
They are so cute.
Great portraits of our adorable blues Sweet bay! I especially love your seventh from the bottom. It must be pretty cold down your way from the looks of how puffed out they are! ;>)
You're right about the male bluebird. Blue is always such a stricking colour.We have Kingfishers which are azure. I only ever catch a glimpse of them as they fly along the river bank but the colour is so strong.
SweetBay,I enjoyed your bluebirds! Not seen any here lately we usually get 4 or so in the spring. An Eastern Phoebe has been the director at the front bird feeder here.
They look very sweet and fluffy. Lovely pictures.
You have so many bluebird visitors! We only get a few sightings a season, despite putting up several bluebird houses (the house sparrows dominate) What do you do to attract them, anything? Your shots are incredible!
Beautiful pictures! I am still waiting for my bluebirds. What kind of camera do you use?
Great pictures of your bluebirds!! I especially like the ones of the three birds together!!! Can Spring be far away?????
Thank you for your comments!Both we and the neighbors have birdhouses... there's also a lot of undeveloped woodland down here, together with a lot of edges, so woodpeckers provide them with nesting places too and the habitat is ideal. It's a little too "wild" for House Sparrows, thank goodness.I have a Pentax K10 and used a 55-300mm lens for these pictures. We got the Pentax 2 years ago (first digital camera) and now me and the camera are inseparable. In fact I should have done a Valentine's Day post for it. lol Pentax is a really nice camera for the price.
Great photos. Poor things don't like this snowy weather.Marnie
I wish we had bluebirds in Holland. They are such pretty birds!Lieve groet, Madelief
So handsome that male bluebird, and he seems to know it, with two wives :)
Oh how sweet! I know nothing about birds... but they look a little pudgy to me. :)) Is that to stay warm in winter?
Outstandingly beautiful photos.
I just marvel at how people such as yourself take such wonderful photos of birds. I'm thinking patience and a high powered zoom lens. Neither of which I possess which makes viewing your photos all the sweeter. I suppose having these fabulous feathered friends helps you endure the drawn out days of winter. Stay warm.
My dear I could look at these birds all day~~They are so wonderful...I am thrilled with the one or two that visit my garden...I would be in bluebird heaven in yours! gail
Oh, the bluebirds. What incredible patience to get such marvelous photos. By the time my eyes focus, they've flown away, much less the camera.
The must love that arbor. They look so cute all puffed up trying to stay warm.
Don't you just love how they fluff up and look like little fatties?! I am not sure why, but they are my most 'common' bird during the winter months, these last few years. I counted 17 yesterday...male & female. When nesting time comes, they stay and keep eating, but as soon as the babies are born, off they go and I don't see them again until winter.
You have taken and shared such Wonderful photos of bluebirds! They are such cute little fellows, aren't they? They arrive here in the Spring and will stay through late Fall. (They really don't like our Winters!) I have a house all ready for their arrival this Spring - unless the little Wrens move in, first! Thank you so much for sharing your photos. :-)
Great shots! I love the bright blue color, too. They are beautiful birds.
Beautiful, indeed! On one of the pictures, she looks straight at you!
Thank you everyone for your kind comments. Bluebirds manage to be cute and beautiful at the same time. :)
Hi there sweet bay, I don’t think I’ve seen a post with so many Bluebird photos! A treat for me as I’ll never see this bird here in Scotland :-)That blue is very striking in the male Bluebird, I cannot deny that, I like the toffee colour too. I have to say though, I do find the female equally pretty. Thanks for sharing your pics :-D
I guess there in NC you know the real meaning of Bluebird of Happiness.As always, lovely photos.donna
Amazing photos, Sweet Bay! I've never seen a bluebird here, so these are such a treat--what a sweet bird. They certainly put a smile on my face.
Your beautiful photos make me smile :) I'd so love to see bluebirds around here, but we don't seem to be able to attract them. Maybe it's for the best since our cats would probably bother them. I'll just have to be content to enjoy your little beauties. They are so sweet! Thanks for sharing them.You've had some wild weather! Sorry to hear that nasty wind did such damage. Never a dull moment. Hope things are calmer for the rest of the winter.
The sweeetest birds I've ever seen. I think I have to start another blog with bird photos, after enjoying yours as much as I did. Thank you, and have a lovely weekend,Hillvissan, Sweden, Europe
Such pretty pics!! My daughter got a ton of bluebirds at her house just before one of the storms. I think they were eating her suet.
Delightful pictures of the bluebirds! I hope to see them again when it warms up a bit!Sadly I had to remove my bluebird house because the house sparrows were determined to use it instead.
