An American Robin and Bluebirds

The American Robin on the left is one I took photos of in this post here.  You can click on the link if you missed that post and would like see my photos.   

We were walking around the vegetable garden at one of our favorite local spots.   The vegetables are protected from local wildlife (except for birds) by a tall chicken-wire type fence.  When we saw birds we slowly made our way around.

Much to my delight we came across a Bluebird family taking a moment to rest.  Several of them allowed me to take a few photos before flying off into the trees.

Why am I so delighted?  This is my first sighting ever of a Bluebird.  I have only seen their photographs in books and on other blogs.  It made my day to be able to observe several of them.

Today I am linking with Michelle's Nature Notes and Stewart's Wild Bird Wednesday.   Their buttons are on my side-bar.  Thank you Michelle and Stewart for hosting these two great memes.
