An Eastern Bluebird in the West

On my way home from work this afternoon, I saw this Eastern Bluebird near my house,

Eastern Bluebirds are not very common in Alberta — there are only a couple of sighting each year in the province, mostly in southern Alberta.

This is my second sighting of this species — the first in Ontario a couple of years ago though I didn’t get a good look at it, and now this bird!

  2. Very nice photos. Eastern bluebirds are such interesting birds. It’s always a thrill when we get some to nest in our boxes.
