About Today’s Photo:
The family of bluebirds who’ve been nesting in the box in our front field have fledged. We see them out and about most of the day feeding. I got this somewhat blurry shot of the male poppa and one of the fledglings sitting on the volleyball net (a favorite perch) as the sun went down. I like the hint of blue in the fledgling’s wing feathers.
