I don’t get to go birding very often but sometimes I am treated to a real gem in my own backyard. Malia spotted this beautiful adult male Eastern Bluebird perched on one of the shepherd’s hooks for our feeders. He was very cooperative for us as we scrambled for our cameras and started shooting. His colors are absolutely exquisite! I LOVE this time of year!
