You never know what to expect these days. I was out checking on the cats in the screen room just now and heard a splash. Grabbed my camera and from the deck I saw a bluebird taking a dip in the bird bath. He stayed a few minutes. I was several feet away but managed to get a few photos. So excited to see this bluebird. It has been awhile. When I came inside I saw two more splashing. How cool. My day has been made. Also, I saw spots, meaning it was juvenile. Could have been born here in my yard. Very cool.

That would have made my day as well. A beautiful thing to behold, and even better to capture. I had a Jackdaw on the bird feeder eating some cat biscuits. Sadly I didn't have my phone handy to take another sub standard photo lol

I have not seen them in weeks. This was a juvenile, hopefully one that was born here in the backyard house.

It could be one of those that hatched in your yard last Spring. They are supposed to be very territorial.

You were watching those nests closely, I'm sure those bluebirds didn't wander far from your yard! What an amazing photo

The bluebird house was taken down after they fledged. Thank you.

@CarolDM But, birds return to where they originated. That's what Dad said, anyway. Whether it's true or not, I wouldn't know.

@kobesbuddy Yes they do, but I was only saying they were born in a house. They should be around all winter.
