A Western Bluebird at her Toilette

A few weeks ago I had a first time visitor to the little feeder which turned into a bird bath after the rainy week. I was thrilled to see the Western Bluebird in my yard!

Well, she like the temperature, and atmosphere so she decided to stay and have a bath. Luckily my camera was nearby.

Eyeing up the tub, and making sure the coast is clear overhead…

“Do you mind! I’m bathing here!” That look really got me thinking…”man I’m a voyeur!” 🙂

Do you mind I'm bathing here!

All clean! She had a good shake and flew away after this image was taken. I hope she comes back!

I took these images through the window so they’re a bit soft. I used the dehaze feature to help that a bit. It’s a pretty neat feature!

  1. We had bluebirds nest in our yard in Southern New Jersey. I love them so much and used to cry when the babies didn’t succeed and even when they fledged. When moving to Western Colorado I was so happy to see that we have both Western and Mountain Bluebirds here. I saw one this morning… so bright against the white snow. Beautiful post!

      1. You really are so talented and I was surprised to see you painting! What a great thing to be able to do! I cannot draw a line haha. I have a few kids who paint and I am always thrilled to see this! I love the birdie just beautiful!
