This might be one of the coolest bird pictures I have taken. I had just set up the new Bluebird House with the hidden BirdCam and I heard the distinctive call of the Eastern Bluebird. I ran inside to get some mealworms as I figured the Bluebirds would be coming to visit soon.
Sure enough, the male and female Bluebird flew down to eat some mealworms.
Shortly thereafter, the male Bluebird flew up to the Maple Tree, and I noticed an American Goldfinch sitting almost on the same branch.
I dash back inside to grab my camera, thinking surely one of them would fly off before I had my camera ready.
Luckily for me, neither one of the birds flew off.
It wasn’t until tonight when I was downloading the pictures, that I noticed there were actually 2 American Goldfinches along with the male Eastern Bluebird. Since it was a cloudy, cold day, I guess they were all trying to conserve energy, and probably wait for me to put out more food!
Here’s a second picture. Obviously these pictures won’t win any awards, but it was pretty neat to some 2 very pretty birds sitting almost side by side.
