Colony Farms, George Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary, Iona Beach Regional Park are a good start.

Really liking the old fence that you captured this Bluebird on and back ground is great too. Old fences, especially that used White Oak posts provided homes for Bluebirds for many years as they would often become hollow with age. The use of steel post and osage orange have eliminated the possible nesting posts that Bluebirds once used so it is nice to see these captures, like days gone by.

Thanks Steve !
I have a thing for old wire fences....it is my favourite perch. I even prefer it over a "natural" perch. I don't know why, just something about it.
