The Eastern Bluebird is the state bird of Missouri. However, we rarely see them. We have several bird feeders, including the type of food they (supposedly) like.
This morning three or four of them appeared (at least one male), checking out a little bluebird/wren house attached to a tall tree stump near the feeders and in full view of our bedroom window.
They were peeking inside and seemed interested but did not try to go in.
After their recon mission was over, they left, and shortly a Carolina wren went inside the house. Oh.
(For those interested, my camera is a Canon PowerShot SX50 HS.)
