I See Sky Of Blue!

F/11.0, 1/500, ISO 320.

Eastern Bluebird 

Imagine you are in a water tank with a roof. There are no objects in the tank to help you escape. How do you get out?

Stop imagining.

Interesting Fact: Males vying over territories chase each other at high speed, sometimes grappling with their feet, pulling at feathers with their beaks, and hitting with their wings. The boxes and tree cavities where bluebirds nest are a hot commodity among birds that require holes for nesting, and male bluebirds will attack other species they deem a threat, including House Sparrows, European Starlings, Tree Swallows, Great Crested Flycatchers, Carolina Chickadees, and Brown-headed Nuthatches, as well as non-cavity nesters such as robins, Blue Jays, mockingbirds, and cowbirds.

  1. “I see skies of blue and clouds of white
    The bright blessed days, the dark sacred nights.”
    Thank you Louis Armstrong.
    And thank you for posting this.

    • Definitely thank you to Louis Armstrong for this amazing song. Thank you very much for stopping by and checking out my post. Stay Safe and Happy Blogging! πŸ™‚

  2. I can imagine the tight grip the bird has on the bud(s). Interesting data, these guys are quite to scrappers to take on blue jays!

    • I would never expect that from this little bird but is very interesting how brave they are. Thank you very much for stopping by. Stay Safe and Happy Blogging! πŸ™‚

  3. Your “Joke” is actually quite profound. How many people live in worry and fear, even now during this labeled crisis, and their worries and fears and the media that winds up those worries and fears, keeps people immobilized rather than in the present moment able to take action or make good decisions.

    Sweet photo, too.
