Female Eastern Bluebird Pencil Sketch p16

We have been lucky enough to have Eastern bluebirds nest in our yard multiple times. As the field nearby is slowly being taken over by trees, our property has become less attractive to the bluebirds. This year they built a nest in one of our boxes and laid laid five eggs. Sadly the house wrens came in, poked holes in all the eggs and took over the nest box. Stinkers. I finally took down the box out of frustration. The bluebirds still come to the yard now and again which always puts a smile on my face. The brilliant blue males are spectacular and the females, though less dramatically colored, are simply beautiful.
