The jewel-like blues of these birds popped against the drab winter woods. They were very busy flittering around, and did not seem to notice the pair of hawks (http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/144...) that were watching them intently.
Eastern Bluebirds live in meadows and openings surrounded by trees that offer suitable nest holes. With the proliferation of nest boxes and bluebird trails, bluebirds are now a common sight along roads, field edges, golf courses, and other open areas. Found in open woodlands, farmlands and orchards, and most recently can be spotted in suburban areas.
Spotted near an uncultivated area next to a mining operation in Kennesaw, GA
