Eastern Bluebird

November 01, 2022

I went to Brier Island for a couple of days. On my first day, last Friday, I spotted a dozen Eastern Bluebirds on wires beside the road to the western light near the two cemeteries. I managed one usable photo, the last one in this series. I spoke to a local who said there was a flock of 500 Eastern Bluebirds the day before. Now that would have been a sight.

The best photo I captured, the first one below, was the following day about thirty minutes before sunset. Although the photograph required severe cropping the lighting of the late day sun made the blue birds appear quite striking.
