It was a cold morning (30 degrees), but the sun was shining brightly, so I took to the trail in search of the elusive (to me) bluebird, and today, he was there, right on the nesting box where I hoped to see him. There was only one, no mate, but possibly she was inside the nesting box. One can hope, at any rate.
How can you not smile when you see these bright-eyed little birds? When the sun shines all day and a bluebird shows up to pose for his picture, the day is off to a good start!
On another note, I saw a tiny bird that I can’t identify flitting from branch to branch of an evergreen by the sledding hill. I didn’t get a good picture, but I’m posting him anyway, hoping that someone can give me an ID. He was one of the fastest moving birds I’ve encountered in a long time, and an expert at hiding behind branches.I snapped a lot of pictures, and this was the best I could do. If you know what it is, please leave a comment.
Thanks for joining me along the trail today.
