Baby Bluebird Sky (SWF)

1. Sky blue bird-kab Juvenile Eastern Bluebird at Geremonty Marsh 9-8-11

Though it is not quite yet autumn by the calendar, you couldn’t tell it by the marsh as hints of autumn color already dot the landscape in this Salem, NH town where I like to go bird watching before I do my shopping and other errands. Last week I stopped here and was surprised to find a pair of juvenile Eastern Bluebirds hanging out in the marsh and on the fences by the school yard. Is there any color of blue prettier than the sky blue of a bluebird?

2. sky blue baby-kab I just love the wide-eyed look of this fledgling.

Better get going little one. Autumn’s on its way and winter is not far behind. Grow those little feathers on you wings and FLY!

  3. Those youngsters better grow up and fly away soon if fall is settling in.

    That first shot IS amazing!

  7. Hi Kathie

    Lovely photos. The second shot with the beautiful out of focus background leaves is priceless and really shows off the bluebird's colours.

  8. Bluebirds are indeed beautiful! Love you images! The fledglings are so very cute with their spotted feathers. We were fortunate to have one Bluebird pair produce three broods in the same house this year. Bluebird fun! Thanks for sharing this wonderful post!
