First Bluebird ?
It's a beautiful sunny day here so I tramped out in the snow to take some pictures. The view you see is from the garden facing east. The snow is now filled with animal tracks. In the distance is one of my husband's "temporary" stone walls and the bee hives.
I came back in the house to start chili and corn bread for lunch, and it was while I was cooking that I saw it. He was perched on the bluebird house that I can see out my kitchen window. He was facing me so I didn't see that fabulous blue flash. It was the rosy chest that caught my eye. I ran to get the binoculars to get a better look, and when I got back... GONE! I look for robins in the spring, but they can't touch the thrill of that first bluebird. Wow, he made my day!
