Eastern Bluebirds

One afternoon while I was out walking, I saw a small group of bluebirds foraging for insects.  They sat in bushes and low limbs of trees waiting, and then dropped to the ground to capture their prey.  Their beautiful blue color really made them stand out against the neutral colors of the landscape.

The bluebird, famous for the scrap of sky
Borne on his back – an indigo so bright
That just a glimpse of his distinctive flight,
All swoop and flurry, captivates the eyes
and makes us smile …
