They sweetly assert


Baby bluebirds follow their parents to the feeder, last Thursday in the rain.


They wait…


… to be fed.

As might be expected of creatures so heavenly in color, the disposition of bluebirds is particularly angelic. Gentleness and amiability are expressed in their soft musical voice. Tru-al-ly, tru-al-ly, they sweetly assert when we can scarcely believe that spring is here; tru-wee, tur-wee they softly call in autumn when they go roaming through the countryside in flocks of azure. – Neltje Blanchan, Birds Worth Knowing, 1917
