New Girl in Town
Normally, we don’t have
bluebirds in our yard. They prefer an
open space without many trees. There is
a relatively large flock, though, just down the road from our house. And each year, in January and February, when
the leaves have completely fallen in our back yard, the bluebirds come to
visit. From my art table, I can see one
of the power lines to the yard lights.
To my delight, on one winter morning, we had a series of visits from the
bluebirds. Quickly, I took several
pictures of the visitors. I have to be
honest and admit that there were never four birds on the line at one time. However, after I printed the pictures, I had
to laugh because the birds as shown in the drawing from left to right were the
sequence of the photos coming out of the printer showing the individual
birds. And yes, the third bird from the
left is a female and the rest are males.
So, the title of the drawing explains it all.
