Eastern bluebird

Sialia sialis

Description:

When I first spotted this beautiful English Bluebird, it was in full song mode. Then it got quiet and just posed for me. This is a male in breeding plumage because of its bright blue above, and orange throat and white belly. The female's upperparts are less blue (often grayish); has partial whitish eye ring, and whitish throat bordered by brown lateral throat stripes.

Habitat:

A high percentage of Eastern Bluebirds in North America today nest in birdhouses put up especially for them. This Eastern bluebird was spotted at Kinder Farm Park in Anne Arundel County in Millersville, Maryland, where there are lots of birdhouses around for them to nest.
