Mr Blue Bird at my feeder.

Mr Blue

by bpellephoto

*"Perhaps no other bird is as cherished and admired in New England as the Eastern Bluebird, with the colors of the cool sky on its back and the warm setting sun on its breast. Like the feathers of all blue birds, Eastern Bluebird feathers are not actually pigmented blue. The blue color is a result of each feather's microscopic structure - shiny blues are produced by iridescence and the dull blues are a result of the same process that produces the blue of the sky."

Well that's he scientific explanation. I just think they are darned beautiful birds no matter how the color is produced.

This is fella and his mate are the third pair to arrive at my feeder so far.

I took this shot on 17 April, 2018. Yes the white spots are snow.

All manual settings.

* Birds of New England, Petersen & Burrows
