Bluebird on ice…

Eastern Bluebird, near our back deck feeding station, Kennebunk Maine.

A companion to the Chickadee post from a few days ago. The birds have been very active at the back deck feeding station. We have meal-worms out for the Bluebirds, and I scattered cracked corn for the Juncos. The Titmice and Chickadees and Downy Woodpeckers are there in greater numbers. We get the occasional White-breasted Nuthatch, and the past two days there has been a lone American Tree Sparrow with the Juncos. We even had one of our rare visits from the Red-bellied Woodpecker. Lots of action in the cold and snow. The Bluebirds, especially this year’s young, will occasionally sit for a picture on the deck mounted perches, but most of the time they fly up into the trees along the edge of the yard as soon as I open the door to the deck. This is one of the pair of adults. Sony RX10iv at 600mm. Program mode. 1/250th @ ISO 100 @ f4. Processed in Polarr.
