I always know it is winter when the bluebirds return to my birdbath. Today they obliged.
This is the male I saw. The two females were there earlier, but disappeared up into the trees, once I found the camera. I have to go looking for them the next few days.
The bluebirds never come to feeders, but water is a great attraction, particularly when it is cold and dry. This is their source, and they return every year. If you want bluebirds to visit you, just add water.
These pics below are from last year.
Hoping to get many more this year.
