Header Challenge--

I have posted this a couple of hours early , so please come back later and visit everyone .

This weeks Header Challenge Theme "See That Birdie" was chosen by http://thefishingguy.blogspot.com/ ..I have had so much fun watching this male Eastern Bluebird fight with himself on the side of my son's truck and on the side of my car. He did this for over 5 hours on Friday, was back on Saturday and Sunday.Please visit the fishing guy, http://imac-photosfromthemindseye.blogspot.com/ , http://womtig.blogspot.com/ , http://meandering-martha.blogspot.com/ and http://beestonblog.blogspot.com/ don't forget to leave a comment!






If you think this side mirror is dirty now, you should have seen it when the Bluebird was finished fighting with it. Not to mention all of the bird poo on the side of the truck and car...



**Weather update** we may not reach 50 today with a chance of rain.... Going to be a cold weekend

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today I am Thankful for the laughter of my children.

How funny, Darla! We have seen cardinals and titmice do that, but never bluebirds. You got some excellent captures of him in action. So sorry about that cold, you should not be having it like that. We should be, and are, but it doesn't make it, the cold, any easier to endure.

Oh no - do you think he likes to see himself or is he fighting. What a funny bird post.

I absolutely love the header. Hopefully I'll be able to check the others before I have to leave work today.

Susie said...

Those pics are so cute! The one of him looking at himself in the outside mirror is my favorite!

imac said...

Well Darla, you done yourself proud here.

Grace Peterson said...

Darla, This photo is absolutely priceless! First place is yours, I'm positive. Poor bird. I hope he finds a real mate soon. What's a bird to do?

Tom said...

What great captures Darla... and of course a great header as well. These birds are stunning, love the colours it has to show off...

I also liked your Thought For The Day... What better sound can there there be... ?

Good look for tonight challenge...

Darla: What a wonderful series with the Bluebird.

Gail's Man said...

I hope the bluebird enjoyed playing with his twin brother!

Martha's Menagerie said...

Tootsie said...

Deb said...

what a cute little bird..you got some great shots...

sweet bay said...

He's beautiful but lending credence to the term "bird-brain" in this situation. lol

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Oh Darla, This one was wonderful!!!!! I love it.... I haven't seen them do this --but I have heard about it and read about it... That poor male Bluebird----he thought there was another male in 'his' territory... How cute!!!! What a great header contest... It has to be a WINNER.

We're having a wonderful time in Arkansas.. We've taken a billion pictures!!! ha
Hugs,
Betsy

Dorothy said...

Your birds are winners, indeed!!
Our Cardinal do the same thing, but haven't seen the bluebirds doing that yet. Great pictures!!

Tatyana@MySecretGarden said...

What a show you had there, Darla! Fun and free!

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Bird brained little thing wasn't he?

Wonderful shots! And an interesting encounter with the bluebird. It's always fun when the birds or animals take an interest in a reflection.

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

That is hilarious! Not only do you get Bluebirds, you get to watch them do funny things.

Randy Emmitt said...

Darla,
You might cover the car with a tarp next time he tries to see himself. I have heard of cardinals doing this but not bluebirds.

Abe Lincoln said...

Amazing. I can't get one here at all. And you got them trying to kill themselves in mirrors. LOL

That reminds me at the city building one year a robin beat the door so much that they had to cover the thing to keep it from killing himself.

My Mother's Garden said...

Hi Darla~

Love the photos! How did you get so close for the header picture?

Happy day!

Kyna said...

Those pictures are hilarious! :D

Lois said...

Oh Darla that is so funny! He thinks he has found another bird and definitely does not want to be friends. I had a cardinal do this to my car a couple of years ago in the parking lot at work.

Skeeter said...

As a bird lover, I absolutely adore these pictures! He is trying so hard to get that good looking male to go away. How funny, that poor little birdie...

Cold here again today too. Sigh...

I am thankful for the wildlife that lightens up my life each day…

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

Oh Darla how cute are those pictures. I love your Blue birds anyway but these pictures are so precious. He was really admiring himself or very jealous. LOL!

Lola said...

He is a messy little thing. No matter I would like to have some BB's here in my garden.
Expecting 26ยบ by morning.

Ellie Mae's Cottage said...

I'm just speechless... these are some fantastic pics! How cool that you caught him in motion at the mirror! Love this post!

Mary said...

I can see why your bluebird header won! What a great series of shots...so funny!

Corner Gardener Sue said...

Hi Darla,
I think your header photo is my favorite of all the ones you guys have had for your contests. I was tickled to see more photos of the bird in this post. They sure fit the theme perfectly, too!

Twisted Fencepost said...

Love the header picture!
It makes me wonder what's going through his mind.
