Feathered friends return…

Last January, one of the first posts to this blog was about a bird that kept trying to get into our RV. All winter the bird (he or she?) would sit by our windows. At the time we thought it was looking for a friend in its relection.

This past week the bird came back — if not the same bird, then a look-a-like relative.

He or she spent a lot of time looking in the side mirror, probably wondering who the other bird was. And this time the bird brought a real live friend (or life-partner), because there were two of them. If anyone can tell me what type of bird it is I would be much appreciative. I've been trying to identify them, but haven't been able to come to a definitive conclusion.

  1. Hi Linda,
    O.K. what you have is an Eastern Bluebird. I have a Field Guide to Birds of North America. It says: "EASTERN BLUEBIRD. Only bluebird east of the Great Plains, fairly common along roadsides and in farmyards and abandoned orchards. The male has a bright, entirely blue back and rusty throat and breast...Recognize female and young as bluebirds by the hunched posture, eye ring,and the blue in wings and tail.
    Juvenal is spotted like a typical thrush.
    Hope this helps. The photos are beautiful.
