I’ve not succeeded in luring bluebirds to my yard in Louisiana but this makes up for it.
The whole back of our home is windows and these lovelies often catch my eye….beautiful, fleeting, elusive…..each one of them eliciting an “ooh, shiny!” response from me.
Every single time I see one I stop to watch and on this day they didn’t seem to mind that I was nearby, clicking away.
Just as elusive and much shyer, this red-headed woodpecker has also started hanging around.
He joins the multitudes of cardinals that make sure I keep sunflower seeds in a permanent place on my grocery list.
