p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Bluebirds, Quails, Violet-green Swallows (6)


Went for a short road trip to south central Washington in hopes of finding some Mountain Bluebirds this past weekend. The weather was perfect and the birds played nice. The Swallows were trying to steal the Bluebirds birdhouse so while the female was working inside the house the male would stand guard and chase the Swallows away. This went on the whole time we watched the one pair.

Love #2 Mr Quail. Nice BG with the other bird OOF and well timed with the foot raised. The last VGS and the male BB are nice portraits but the perch isn't the greatest unless you like that sort of thing. That was a good road trip! Don
