Default Bluebirds.

I got some real lucky shots last year of my bluebirds and wanted to share the sequence of shots with ya'll.

1. Mr. Bluebird coming home with dinner.
2. Mr. Bluebird handing off grub to the Mrs.
3. Mrs. Bluebird has the grub.
4. Mrs. Bluebird faces forward.
5. Mr. Bluebird guarding while the Mrs. feeds the young.

I love the photos. Where does one find a bluebird house like that? My is just plain and boring.

Thank you. Capturing that little slice of their lives has given me a lot of enjoyment. I didn't know as I was taking these that I was getting the exchange of the grub. I didn't even know the male had the grub. I was just snapping.

I'll have to see if they still have anything like that. I didn't realize how boring mine was until I saw yours.
