I’ve mentioned before how happy I am that we have bluebirds living in our yard. Last year they nested in a tree, this year we’ve put up two bluebird houses, and at least one is occupied. Bluebird apparently love to have poles to perch upon. We’ve often seen them on our new garden fence, and they especially love to alight on this tetherball pole. This picture is taken from the kitchen window (through the glass) and is as close as I can zoom. We’ve had a lot of rain so this little birdie is quite damp.
