My first encounter with Western bluebirds was on a trip to the Grand Canyon. Bluebirds came to feast on the leftovers that the picnickers left behind. I was particularly fascinated by the bright blue of the males, and this gave me an opportunity to study them and take many pictures.

A few years later on a trip to Missouri with a friend from the Audubon Society as my guide, I was introduced to the Eastern bluebird. The Eastern bluebird is a much different color blue than his Western counterpart. We found them in the country in hardwood trees and wild rose bushes, as well as in blackberry bushes.

Observing them through my telescope, I saw them flying back and forth from the lower branches to the ground, where they had found something edible. Then would then disappear into some wild rose bushes, seemingly to take a short rest.

As the day grew toward sunset, the sky went from blue to yellow, and the now golden sky shining through the wild rose bushes gave a nice contrast against the blue of the birds and the red of the rosehips.
