The male Eastern bluebird hovering protectively over his babes in the nesting box is a wonderful symbol of fatherhood and a great way to say Happy Father’s Dad to that special dad who has offered security and warmth to his family.

(This photo was taken late in the afternoon as the sun was setting, and the bluebird was facing west with the day’s last light shining on him).
