The Eastern Bluebird (Sialia sialis) is a small migratory thrush found in open woodlands, farmlands, and orchards. It is the state bird of Missouri and New York.
These three flegling bluebirds have left the birdhouse (they have grown too big to fit in it). I found them in my patio. The parents were feeding them at all times, they are staying under some bushes under the care of their dedicated parents.
I had no idea this is the state bird of Missouri. That certainly helps to explain why my aunt, who lives in Kansas City, had so many bluebirds when she put some houses up in the back yard of her previous house! I’ll have to tell her she was housing a state icon!
That explains it! Thank you so much for sharing, Linda. 🙂
That blue is lovely to look at, thank you.
Thank you very much, Susan. 🙂
