It’s rare that our back yard birds frequent our porch railing just yet. Our house has invaded their habitat over the last year and so they are still warming up. The feeder is located just at the edge of our woods and is quite a ways from the house itself so it’s a treat to get to photograph any bird this close.
What fascinated me about this photo of this Eastern Bluebird was the tiny circle of feathers around the eye that I never noticed before (click on the photo to enlarge). We’ve see loads of bluebirds here, but it just goes to show there’s always something else to discover when you look at anything up close.
