Mesmerized By One Proud And Noble Bluebird

It was a beautiful Fall morning yesterday with crisp, clean air and bright blue skies. I was out making my rounds looking for birds that I haven’t seen yet this year. I don’t consider myself to be a “lister” but I have been keeping track of bird species that I see in my county during the year. It’s sort of like completing a puzzle but in this case it’s a bird search instead of a word search.

I was at Machimoodus Park walking the trails at a moderate pace, taking inventory of birds along the way when I encountered a flock of bluebirds out in the field.

My whole plan came to a halt when I came face to face with one particular .

While the other birds were coming and going, I would move a couple of steps closer to him every minute or so but he did not move. this went on for 20 minutes until we were just a few feet away from each other. As other bluebirds came and went hestayed rock solid and continued to look me straight in the eye.

Such a proud and noble bluebird he was!

Married, I am not a casual weekend birder,-still learning-still making mistakes. I am not a writer or photographer but enjoy blogging about my outdoor adventures. I am currently using a Canon PowerShot SX50 HS camera, Meopta Meostar 8x42 binoculars, and a vortex spotting scope. The Name Brownstone Birding Blog comes from the fact that I in which Portland has been known for its brownstone quarries for many years. Much of the brownstone used for older buildings in New York came from the town of Portland.
