Mountain Bluebirds — Nesting Time!

This past Saturday was our Naturalist Society’s annual spring bird count (my post about the count should be published in the next week or so). On the count, I came across a pair of Mountain Bluebirds on the bluebird trail. The other 40 or so boxes on trail are taken over by Tree Swallows who don’t seem to get along too well with the bluebirds.

The Mountain Bluebirds were very co-operative, posing for me nicely and apparently not bothered by me being near them (I was about 30 feet away from the nest box).

Here are a few of my favorite photos of the Mountain Bluebirds from that day,

  1. Charlotte, beautiful photos of these gorgeous Blue Birds! Thanks for sharing them with us. I am glad to see them nesting and may they be successful!

  2. LeConte’s Sparrows, Sprague’s Pipits, Mountain Bluebirds,… I really need to consider Alberta as a birding destination.
