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.

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?

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!
