The Eastern Bluebirds did well this year at my place in town. This is the second successful brood. They didn't do well at all at my other place near the Ouachita National Forest here in Arkansas. Something happened to the male and the female and the eggs were abandoned at that location.
I am always amazed at what the male and female Eastern Bluebirds will bring to feed the young. Caterpillars are popular, but spiders are common also.
I have a simple setup for photographing these birds here in my yard. I photograph them from my pickup which is always nearby and they are used to seeing it. I only spend a short amount of time photographing them and then I leave them alone.
