I have been trying to identify a few birds in our yard and suspect one might be a bluebird. This excellent image of one with such clear detail should be a help. Nicely done! #7285255

WOW I have not heard of heated birdbaths before.
They are spoiled and bet they love it.
Awsome capture, so beautiful! #7285337

Such a wonderful shot, Carol. I can read beaks and this one is saying thank you. Bet your warm bath has a big red x in the bluebird's internal map. #7294964

What a wonderful bird image! Congratulations on your finalist!

Carol, have you ever heard of a magazine called, "Birds and Blooms"

They are a very high quality mag with NO advertisements in it and they are always looking for beautiful bird and flower pics. You should pick your best stuff and send it to them via e-mail! (If you haven't already!)

I'd do this myself if I could ever take a decent shot of a bird or a bloom! HA!

Love this one!

Submitted 3/14/09,animals. Another shot of a bluebird. This is the first year we had a heated birdbath- the bluebirds really flock to it in the winter and spring, although they are not interested in the feeder. I changed the color of birdbath and background to compliment the colors of the bird.
