Bluebirds and a Chat

Eastern Bluebird, Charles River Peninsula, Needham, MA

Can't resist the bluebirds these days. Not when they are so cooperative, especially.

There were three of them on the tower (I've seen as many as five at one time there).

In other news, I tracked down the yellow-breasted chat that's been lurking around the lower garden in Nahanton Park. It is so rare to see them out in the open. I fired off the camera quickly without looking and just prayed it was in the shot. Got it! Not quite focused, but definitely there!

Here's another shot (also just lucky) a little more zoomed out.

Cool bird.
