Yesterday we were out walking Lexi on Jervis Road and we saw our first Mountain Blue Bird of the season. We watched it fly from an Aspen then hoover over a spot in the field, and while I fumbled to get my camera out, it had already moved off into the distance.
I have always had trouble photographing Blue Birds, but last year I did finally did get a descent photo, and I will show you that below. Since we saw yesterday's bird in the same spot, last year's photo may well be the same bird. They are amazingly beautiful and we look forward to catching a sight of them each spring.
