Winter Bluebird by EWilloughby Winter Bluebird by EWilloughby

The eastern bluebird, Sialia sialis, is a familiar sight to most birders in the eastern and midwest part of the US. Despite their relative commonness, they remain one of my favorite birds to photograph for their beautiful colors and spunky, adorable attitude.

I don't usually see them in the winter, though I know they stick around. This male was a stunning sight in Mountain Lakes Park of Princeton, NJ after a recent snowfall.
