  1. Nice photo! We see these around our yard quite frequently. We have also had eastern bluebirds that nested in birdhouses last year and they returned again this year! We also have recently had redwing blackbirds visiting our bird-feeder. (We live in upstate NY) We don’t use AC so in the summer especially we hear the birds quite loudly each morning – I confess that sometimes I shut the window so I can sleep a little longer.

    1. Thanks Bryan 🙂 I would love to have a bird feeder in my backyard to sight these beautiful birds..(minus the noise of course;-))..U seem to have frequent visitors to your backyard:-)

      1. Believe it or not I think that suburban sprawl is what brought the bluebirds to our yard and maybe the redwing blackbirds also. We had an apple orchard next door which is now 60 houses with 20 more coming. I think the bluebirds got forced out of the orchard to our yard. They also put a “retention pond” right next to our property which now has cattails in it so the redwing blackbirds are only a short distance from the feeder. But all in all we would still rather have the orchard since we haven’t had the pack of coyotes howling nearby in the night, or the wild turkeys flocks in the back of the yard in over a year. (But we do still have deer.) (We live in the suburbs between Schenectady, Troy, and Albany)

        Your photo makes me want to find my binoculars and see what I’ve been missing for lack of up close views! Thanks again!

  2. Bryan: You should have an awesome yard. Deers and Turkeys in the yard!!! Looks like a perfect spot for wildlife photography 🙂 I hope these creatures don’t loose their habitat due to the suburban sprawl. True that sometimes we miss to notice beauty in small things around us. Do find your binos 🙂
