Hey Paulette, tell your mountain bluebird fledglings to fly up here to get to know their western bluebird cousins!!!

The 3rd bird is just a house finch. The little bluebirds have the white eye ring---

We must have a mountain bluebird nest near. Three little fledglings came in for water.

Sorry to hear about your bluebirds Sharon. That is a very unfortunate part of the natural course of things. Perhaps your bluebirds will try again...

Love the photo of the immature cardinal. I've never seen an immature; looks like someone flicked it with a paint brush!

Defintely an immature cardinal. We have tons here so I can spot them immediately. No color to their beak, spotty color when it happens, very black eyes, sort of shaggy sometimes. They are cute to watch though.

I am usually too Tammy, and I don't mess with nature too much unless to try to add to it. I love the bluebirds though and they need our help, so... maybe people would like to read this:

I thought I would share the news that the bluebird nest was destroyed (in the gourd). I had seen, heard and tried to distract a singing sparrow, even though I thought it was a chipping sparrow and was hoping there would be no problems. It seemed to be hassling the female bluebird the other day though. I hadn't seen the parents and yesterday decided to look and saw nothing in the gourd, finally moved it a bit and then saw at least 1 dead baby, there was a dead baby at the base too... and big surprise the sparrow hasn't been around either. I can't stand those house sparrows! :-(

I am wondering if this guy and the one I posted earlier aren't immature Cardinals. I have taken photos of two adults that come to the feeder and I am thinking these might be their "kids".

We have the same contest here in the spring. The grosbeaks stay about three weeks and things get a little hectic out there. We have two big feeders with black oiled sunflower seed and they are busy all the time.
