    Hoping for some bluebirds in our backyard when we get to NC.

    What an incredible series of shots! You got the color of the bluebird in the sunlight so perfectly too. It makes me want to flop about in a birdbath myself. 😀

    Lovely! Bluebirds are so beautiful—we have a pair nesting at the end of the garden, but I haven’t seen them as close as this. Thanks!

    I could not even read that statement fast! lol. Love the picture of the bluebird. They are one of my favorite birds. I saw several cardinals hanging out in my yard this morning.

    Hey, that’s the bird I had to rescue out of my woodstove. He was covered in soot when I let him go. I guess he came over for a bath!

  14. Benjamin Says:

    Haha, Debi, you made me laugh so much with that comment 😀

    And Mommy, as usual, your alliteration is supreme.

    So pretty, like someone painted the color on him!

    Oh my, I’ve never seen a Bluebird bathe before. That is just so sweet!!
    I’ve followed you through Jayne’s blog, hope you don’t mind.
    Beautiful shots of a beautiful bird.

    Incredible. Great shots, especially the second one. It’s been far too long since I’ve seen the bluebirds out.

    Ha ha ha. This cracks me up. I feel like I just got splashed.

    What gorgeous pictures! I’ve been out of pocket…PC probs, health probs…but I’m back, and have been trying to get a picture of the two male Indigo Buntings at my feeder. I’d had a bit of a dispute with a fellow (& others) in my writers’ group as they disagreed that male Indigo Buntings have black feathers that look a striking blue in the sunlight.

    Well. I haven’t managed the pix yet, but did quote my Audubon Society bird book. I think the IB is magical!

    Love your Blog, and your writing about your Mom, and your child. As for not graduating college, I had a childhood much like A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, yet grew up with enthusiasm and passion, held down a job that required a degree (I told them the truth) and was once asked to TEACH at a college! Some of us are unique, Beth, and our friends know this and love us for ourselves.
