Yet ANOTHER Avian Arrival

Blue grosbeak. We had one of these around (briefly) last year as well. It's nice living in the middle of the Mississippi Flyway!

I don't find that blue bird's beak gross at all...looks very nice, in fact...

Travis said...

Great looking bird!

bernie kasper said...

Beautiful image and subject, boy I would love too photograph a bird like this, well done Lana !!

Donnetta Lee said...

Pretty, pretty little blue boy. What a luscious shade of blue. Nice pic! D

Love the 3rd one down - great perspective.

Lana Gramlich said...

Cloudia; Aw, shucks...You're too kind!

Rob; We typically only get one here for a little while. Still...better than nothing!

Dr. Jay; I agree!

Travis; Aren't they PURDY?

bernie; Thank you kindly! You definitely blow me out of the water where photography's concerned, though!

Donnetta; Thanks! At first I thought it was an indigo bunting, but it was too long for that. I was delighted to see that I was wrong.

Drowsey; 3rd one down? Thanks, regardless!

Fantastic photograph!

What a beautiful bird :D

Lana Gramlich said...

Miladysa; Thank you kindly. :)

When one of those is reported around here-everyone goes to see it.

Tabib said...

Nice catch here.
Beautiful blue bird.

Lana Gramlich said...

Larry; They're here even more rarely than the rose-breasted, so I was glad to get some good shots!

Tabib; Thank you!

Lynda Lehmann said...

How gorgeous! He's almost indigo!

Lana Gramlich said...

Lynda; Yes. At first I mistook him for an indigo bunting!
