The Blue Bird

A few years ago, I noticed these little wooden boxes affixed to fences along the roads and highways of western Colorado. I found out that one volunteer, who was saddened by the disappearance of the Mountain Bluebird, had constructed and installed these birdhouses; favored by these birds that spend their summers here. It's not hard to find one. They are spaced about two per mile, in open areas, for miles and miles. Now other areas of the state have joined in, by doing the same in their counties

If you look closely you will see this beautiful bird sitting atop  these little boxes. The male, of course, being the brighter  blue.

  1. What a terrific volunteer! So happy that others are doing the same now. That bird is too beautiful to ignore and allow to become extinct.

  2. What a beautiful colour the bird has. You can't miss them I think, only when the sky is as blue as the bird maybe.
