Description

I was lucky enough to have a pair of eastern bluebirds nest in one of my boxes this spring, where they laid 6 eggs and fledged 5 young. Several weeks after the young fledged, the male brought two of the youngsters back to our garden to feed them mealworms, which is when I snapped this photo. It was sheer magic watching them and I stayed outside, quietly snapping away for 30 minutes until they left.
