Mr. Blue

We are enamoured with bluebirds. Then again, who isn't. We just feel so lucky this year that they are nesting close to our house. They come in frequently for the mealworms we put out. They seem eager for this supplemental food for themselves and their nestlings, especially since the weather has been cool and rainy, the type of weather that depresses the insect activity that they hunt.
I just love the way he looks in different light, sometimes sky blue, somtetimes deep blue. This photo was taken on a dim, misty day and the blue seems deep and rich.
This is a busy week for us, so we will blog when we can. Have a good week.

I am in central FL. It looks like they may come this far south but I've never seen one. Do you raise your own mealworms? I would love to have them come here.

We live in Southwest Lower Michigan. My neighbor has a pair nesting in a birdhouse on her property. It's the first pair ever to do that. We like to spy out the window at them.
