Blue Birds Back

Yesterday was the first day I have noticed the return and passing through of the Mountain Bluebird in the Bella Coola Valley.  Their arrival in the last 10 years that I've noted has ranged from March 24 to April 4.  They only spend a week or 10 days here at the most in the lower valley along fields and fence posts, then they disappear as they continue their migration. In spite of nest boxes attempts over the years I've never heard of them nesting here.

A little mixed weather overnight gave way to a great spring day of 13 C today in the Bella Coola Valley.  Perfect for getting a start on the outdoor spring chores and winter cleanup.  Grizzly

  1. My favorite little bird. I have only seen them once. This is a very pretty picture. What a very special 10 days they must be.
