hey Joan - yes we have Bluebirds here. I've seen them while birding.

Tony I love the Tanager photo. So lovely - and the flowers too.

Wonderful.

I thought the European Starling looks like it is embossed in gold.

So beautiful.

Thanks Steph!  That's a great picture! :) And that European Starling is absolutely stunning!

Steph: European Starling, I have never seen a blue color on a starling, maybe black or brown, and of course the yellow beak.

Steph, your bluebird is so pretty. Do you have them in your area? 

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 13, 2013 at 11:12pm
Tony:
Abyssinia Roller, the combination of blue and brown must be a sight to behold.
Sunbittern looks like Native American bead work … may be a pattern they observed and copied, it is lovely.
Nicobar Pigeon, encyclopedia reveals it is closely related to Dodo. It is such a beautifully colored bird.
Kestrel, such rich blues all these birds have, and mixed with brown and yellow, a nice color scheme for a room.
Indigo Bunting, another outstanding blue! What a treat!
