5 x 5 inches, Oil on Gessoboard $ 45.
This is my first Eastern Bluebird sighting and painting...all in the same day! Four of these beautiful birds were at the birdbath and shrubs that live just under my living room window. So I grabed the cell phone out of my smock and walked very slowly to the window.
As soon as I could focus the lens, I started snapping. Got three somewhat grainy photos, but that's ok. I'm really excited about their visit and getting any photos. According to my "Birds of New York field guide", the usual winter pattern with Eastern Bluebird is they migrate to the western third of the state and fly in groups. That explains why this group stayed close to each other while perching on the shrubs and taking turns sipping from the birdbath.
I sure hope they make my birdbath a daily must do.
