Bliss

Bluebird seen through deck railing.

The deck furniture has been put away for months of cold and white but yesterday I found an old plastic chair and sat out in sunshine with the birds. It got up to 56 degrees!

I observed the two male bluebirds continuing to vie for the honor of food provider to the female. (At least, this is what I think they are doing.) They chase each other from the feeders, zooming like little blue jet fighters.

The female has leisure time to feed, while her suitors eye her and each other from branches in the trees closest to the feeders.

May the best man win.

We are back to cold today, with rain and sleet and snow on the way. But we had a nice taste of coming spring.
