Bluebird of Happiness

Eastern Bluebird

Eastern Bluebird

Yesterday, while on a springtime walk in the park, I finally captured this photo of an Eastern Bluebird, just in time for JNW’s One Word Photo Challenge with the theme of Bird. Perfect timing! I have been trying to take a clear photo of a bluebird for weeks. I like to think this is the Bluebird of Happiness that I have always heard about.

I had never even seen a bluebird until this year! I am glad I started looking out for them so I could experience their beauty firsthand. The park I was walking in has nest boxes to encourage the population. The pretty little birds are fast fliers and I was lucky that this bird rested long enough for me to focus my camera!

Birdwatching is a relatively new interest of mine, so I will likely be posting more photos of other birds from time to time. It is refreshing to be outside and I really am in wonder of each little bird as I admire it! I love the challenge of locating certain birds and the challenge of taking an interesting picture too. Adding to my sighting list has been fun!

Do you have bluebirds where you live?

  1. This brings to mind the little ditty I learned/heard as a child. “May the bluebird of happiness fly up your nose. May a pink elephant step on your toes.” Neither of these sounds particularly exciting, but there it is.
