Eastern Bluebird

Sialia sialisEastern Bluebird

The bluebirds immediately took advantage of the newly cleared ground yesterday after we burned 40-acres of prairie. It must be easier for them to spot instects. Here a male bluebird is perched on a scorched compass-plant stalk.

I’ve noticed the Bluebirds are starting to check out the nesting boxes. Eastern Bluebirds are the state bird of Missouri.
