The male Eastern Bluebird … my favorite birdie … image captured on a bird walk in Olney, Maryland in June of ’08 with the Nikon D40x and the 70-300mm vr Nikon lens at focal length of 300mm. Image has been cropped. Shutter was 1/320, Aperture f/5.6, exp 0.00, iso 100. Texture added in Photoshop along with some digital painting.

Range and Habitat
Eastern Bluebird: Breeds east of Rockies from southeast Canada to Gulf of Mexico; winters in southern portion of breeding range. Inhabits open woodlands, clearings, farmlands, parks, orchards, gardens, fields; often seen along roadsides on utility wires and fences.

INTERESTING FACTS
When approached by a predator, male Eastern Bluebirds make a song-like warning cry. If a male is not present, a female will begin to sing, hoping to attract a protective male back to the territory.
Their numbers have declined due to competition from starlings and house sparrows for nest sites.
Clutch size varies with latitude and longitude, with bluebirds farther north and farther west having larger clutches.
A group of thrushes are collectively known as a “hermitage” and a “mutation” of thrushes.
