They love to sit atop last years crop of invasive weeds (mulleins). I wonder where they perched before we had so many invasive weeds?
After they swoop to eat a bug off the ground, they return to another very similar perch.
Their color is mind-boggling. The males are brightest at this time of year - breeding season.
It's one of our main signs that spring is on the way because most of our wildflowers are still tiny, not taller than 6". You have to really look for them.
Soon, the meadows will be wild with color. For now, the bluebirds provide us with amazing blue colors. Shyla's toys also brighten up the scene!
