Bluebird of Happiness

For several years now we have been graced with North Eastern Bluebirds nesting in our yard. There is something magical especially about the glistening blue backs of the male birds , while the somewhat drabber females busily build and sit on their nests. I look for them every year. As yet none has appeared. I hope they return and I can't help but expect another blessed year at the same time.

This is such a beautiful sketch. Love how you did the background. I saw my first bluebird in our yard just two days ago. They are special.
