Blue Birds!

So Steve and I learned that 30 or 40 miles from where we live is apparently the blue bird capital of the WORLD. (according to their brochure) So after church on Sunday we decided to go on a trip to see blue birds as I don't think I've ever seen one before.

They are beautiful! I apologize that we didn't get better pictures but these little guys are flighty! Also, there isn't a real road or path to see them from. You see them off the highways where you can't stop, or off a dirt road just outside of town. The overcast sky didn't help either as many of our pictures turned out to be beautiful little blue bird silhouettes against the bright cloudy sky. But, here are a few of our better ones anyway.

The lighter colored bird in these two is the female.

And more males.

Once again, so pretty! I just wish more of our pictures had turned out in focus... All the same, we are learning that there are some fabulous little secrets here in our desert.

  1. Sweet 2 see you both are getting out and about these days..(all things considered). Loved the pics, I'm just wondering however when Capt'n Steve is going to post some pics of birds rather than bird food?!!!
