Bog Bluebirds!

9 posts in this topic

I went fishing for redhorse suckers this morning at the Forbes Dam (St.Louis River)..the suckers wouldn't cooperate,to cold yet for "the big run" but one small northern did hit my nightcrawler for the first fish of the year for me!(released of course but sure felt good! grin).....The morning wasn't all lost as I did get a few quick images of a couple of spring bluebirds just south of the St.louis River on Hwy #7!....wish they were closer than 60 yards but hey!....lucky to even see em grin...not alot of these guys up here!.....(bird images digiscoped Nikon ED-50)

I like the shot of the "couple", any day now and they should show up in my yard to start looking at nest boxes. The tree swallows arrived on Thursday before the cold spell but I think they headed back south.

Great to see the Bluebirds are getting that far north. Warblers can't be too far behind.
