Sorry I keep posting these little guys, but I just can't get enough of them!

No need to apologize! I don't blame you at all! I wish I knew of a nest near me. Do you ever see Mom and/or Dad near by?

Yes, mom and dad are in a near by set of pine trees usually. Very hard to find them in the trees, and usually buried back in behind branches, and pine cones.

No worries, I wish I could find some and I'd do the same!

Last spring I noticed a male bluebird attacking its reflection in my office window, so I mounted a piece of a branch I had carried in and varnished on the top of a shepherd's pole near the window and waited for him to use it as a perch.

Ta-da!

Wow. Awesome Shane. No worries here too. I would be there everyday if I live close by. They are so cute.

Just relaxing on lunch break when this little fella popped his head out from the bush. I enjoyed his colours.

I go to all three, live near Grassy Waters which has the least wildlife but the PLACE is the most photogenic, I think. Wako is a very active rookery now.

There are several others near here that are active, right now Peaceful Waters in Wellington has a lot of activity. There are some good spots up your way, too. The whole state I think is birdwatcher heaven....there are so many I haven't been to yet. My avatar photo was taken by a photo buddy at Viera Wetlands a few months ago.

Good bit of info. I am heading up that way soon and hope to add Riverbend Park to the list of parks in Palm Beach to visit.
