The Bluebird of Happiness

Well, I don't know about that, but they do put a smile on my face.  December First arrived with a gentle snow and rain mix throughout the day and a couple of Eastern Bluebirds.  My header picture is from that day, with a bit of snow falling in the background.  Tuesday was a foggy, drizzly day and the front yard was just a-flutter with activity!  Three bluebirds were in and out of the holly all morning and while waiting their turn, sat in branches above the yard.

Waiting to drop into the holly bush.
This Bluebird found itself in the company of Mourning Doves!


  1. Bluebirds are beautiful in all kinds of weather.I'm glad they came to grace the trees in your yard with their beauty.

  2. Glad you stopped by my blog (again).
    While I have seen bluebirds around here from time to time, I have never enticed any to nest here. I have a neighbor who has a bluebird box, but only occasionally does she manage to get any residents.

  3. My friends all sumer they rarely stay here for the winter. Such beautiful birds...:)

  4. Your last image makes my heart sing! Nature so comforts and brings so much Joy!
    In case I run out of time to make the rounds, I wish you the Happiest Christmas ever and may you have many more treasured birding moments in the coming year! It's raining it's snow here!
