The Blue Bird of Happiness

Last Sunday while we (the son and I) were walking we saw two Blue Birds just ahead of us. They were so pretty we just stopped and admired them for a while. Since then they've come to our yard and my son got a few pics.







 And in case you were interested, Bluebirds are in the Thrush family - like Robins.

Have a great weekend :)

  9. We had some robins in our backyard a few days ago. Apparently those Thrush birds are making the rounds;)

    Love the pics of your bluebird. Even though the winter has been brutal, looks like he has found food. Yay!

  18. Oh, what sweet little birds! I love seeing that dash of bright color against the white/grey/brown backdrop of winter. It's like a little breath of spring - and Lord knows I could use that right now :)
