Camera Critters #191

Several years ago, when I was visiting my brother in Texas, I had a list of things I wanted to see and image while there.  Though I only crossed a few off my list, I did come across a few things which weren’t on my list.

On one of my early trips out and about, I came across a blue bird playing in a bush.  I could see flashes of blue, but had no idea what it was.  A week or so later, during one of my final ‘out and abouts',

This time I was thrilled to see it, as it was the first time I had seen that species of bird.

If you don’t recognize the birds…they are male (top) and female Blue Grosbeaks.

Great to see a Blue Grosbeak. Something I have yet to see.

I'd love to see one. I once was able to photograph a Rose-breasted Grosbeak, another beautiful bird.

Beautiful birds. I only get to catch glimpses of these birds when they are migrating South.
