Mating season has clearly begun!
The other day I watched as this female Bluebird landed on the deck rail and posed rather provocatively.
Meanwhile, this handsome fellow sat in the treetops and serenaded her.
After listening to him croon away for a bit, she gave out a flirtatious chirp (at least that’s how it seemed to me!) and he immediately flew down and got her some food.
He then proceeded to bring his food gift to the fair maiden, who eagerly accepted his offering.
Yes, love is definitely in the air!
I hope this means there will be lots of little baby Bluebirds to take pictures of in the coming months!

Love the orange and blue coloration together, what gorgeous birds. Great photos!

🙂 we are watching some mating rituals too. lovely photos Kathy!
It really is rather mesmerizing to watch. 🙂
Holy heck! Impossible to resist!!
She should be careful, I think he’s planning more than dinner and a movie!
That was a great comment…and I would dare say you are right!
A beautiful photo essay. Over here Autumn has kicked in and the birds are very demure.
Demure – great word!
What a lovely sequence. How wonderful to watch the birth of true love!
They have nested in the front yard, so I really am hoping for some Bluebird babies. 🙂
Thats so sweet, wonderful you could capture the moment and thank you for sharing it!
My pleasure. I was happy they showed up when I had a camera in hand. 🙂
Wow, good job spotting and capturing the courtship feeding. I’ve watched the cardinal pair engage in this but never quickly enough to get out the camera. Brava!!
Can’t take much credit since they basically played out the scene right where I was already standing, but it was fun to watch!
WOW WOW WOW Love is in the air
What an adorable post, Kathy! And I know a joy to watch unfold before your eyes, what a delight. Fingers crossed for babies soon!
I love the pictures of the two together. So far this spring, I have only seen the male on my trail walks.
It can’t get more romantic than this!! Beautiful captures.
Ah, the things we do for love ❤ ❤ 😀 😀
