Bird of the Week Challenge: 7th March - 'Blue'

Happy Monday all

 

Just a reminder that the site is a bit slow still and we are working on a fix today and tomorrow. The site may be down for a while tomorrow (Tuesday) afternoon/evening so don't panic if you cant get through.

Thought I would do a theme this week that could be interpretted both specifically or perhaps more generally. So lets see photos falling into the theme of 'blue'

I know this is not native but I got him when I was out Samsonvale the other week.

He is remarkably blue!

Here is my contribution. Variegated Fairy Wren. On Valentines day we were taking some dirt tracks discovering new roads in sunshine coast hinterland (QLD) and driving past I caught a flash of blue. Slammed on the brakes and jumped out of car. There were 4 of these stunning males with one female. They waited while we took a few photos. Now this is my type of valentine's present.

Okay, there's no bird in this shot, but someone's bower certainly has a lot of blue...
