Look what brightened my day!

It's been raining ALL DAY again. I've hated to even look out the window. But I'm sure glad I did a few minutes ago! See what I saw!

A bluebird!

An eastern bluebird, to be exact.

(Click any photo to enlarge.)

I've only seen one here a couple different times in the spring... for maybe 10 seconds each. So I was shocked to see one on our deck railing, much less have it sit there long enough to take pics of it! This is a male. There was a female, too, only when I moved to get a pic of her, they both flew away.

They must've been hanging around the house for a while, and chirping, because Willow was intently looking out the deck windows for a long time... waiting. I couldn't figure out what she'd seen. But now I know. And they made my day!

Update, Thursday morning: They're still here! I saw them drinking out of the birdbath.

Willow's still waiting for them to come back. Birds (a.k.a. entertainment) have been pretty scarce around here lately. Can't say as I blame them, with this weather!
