Mountain Bluebird Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: It's hard to top photo #1 below for a favorite, given the brilliant blue plumage of the male Mountain Bluebird, offset by the unusual orange-hued background. However, I'm kind of partial to this one, with the great plumage detail and those wonderful blue primary feathers and tail. Taken at North Cave Hills in Harding County, South Dakota, on July 23rd, 2011.
