Mr. Bluebird




Besides being one of our favorites, the Eastern Bluebird is also the state bird of Missouri.




After a morning bath, he shakes vigorously.




He cleans up pretty good, don't you think?




This male air-dries in the dogwood tree.  

When the berries ripen, it looks like he'll have plenty to eat.

These are wonderful pictures of the Bluebird. They are beautiful birds to start with, but you have captured life itself ... personality, activity, I love it. And, the dogwood ... so rich and the berries look ripe. I'm surprised the Bluebird isn't chowing down :) Lovely post ...

Hi Connie, it seems as though we haven't visited each other in a very long while!
This bluebird is so pretty and photogenic and you have captured him so perfectly in each image. What a perfect perch for his dainty little claws!

I love the expression on his face when he is all fluffed out. So adorable. I wish bluebirds lived out here.
