Little Chirping Bluebird by Bonnie T.  Barry

This is a photo I took from this past nesting season; a fledgling bluebird landed on a branch near my patio and was chirping merrily. Young bluebirds are speckled and big-eyed and very curious about the new world they’re discovering daily since leaving the nest. They love to frequent the birdbaths and just hang out with their siblings while Mom and Pops start nest number two or three of the season. They’re just learning to find their own food, so frequently they still look for handouts from their parents. It’s not uncommon to see a young bluebird with its beak opened in wide expectancy when Mom or Pops lands nearby.

    The green , blue and orange catch your eye immediately. The moment is beautiful. In fact I would enter this in the moment competition because it is a moment indeed. Plus the sharpness of this photograph is amazing. Well done with this photograph. Lets not forget how cute he is!

    Superb shot Bonnie. The out of focus light background really enhances the darker subject.
