I suspected the bluebirds I saw earlier were locals, so I have kept an eye open at the same location. I spotted one of the bluebirds this morning sitting on a fence and looking for lunch. Under this morning's clouds I needed to get closer for a good shot. I snuck up and I got a number of pics in before he dove to the ground, grabbed a worm, and flew off.

I saw lots of small birds today driving home. Seemed to all be white-throated sparrows and yellow-rumped warblers. Found a few flowers still blooming this third week of September. Oh, and squirrel with no tail!

First Bluebird I have seen in Minnesota! I was driving on Howard Gnesen past the cemetery this late afternoon and notice something different about the two birds sitting on the fence. I turned around and upon re-approach they flitted into the cemetery flashing their colors. Bluebirds?! I scrambled for my camera which had on the wrong lens. I swapped lenses and pulled up to shoot...NO CARD! I left it in my computer! I fumbled around for the backup card in my camera bag, slide it in, and get a few quick shots before they take off over the headstones. Then I notice my ISO is set at a grainy 3200 from my previous shoot. Not on my game today, but I still got the pics.
Eastern bluebird, feathers ruffled in the wind.
