My third encounter with Mountain Bluebird

I hike up Griffith Peak very often for the exercise.
This was the third time within the last two weeks that I have spotted
a Mountain Bluebird up there.
Their striking color is hard to miss.

I took this picture on the summit of Griffith Peak in the Spring Mountains, Nevada
on July 7, 2007.

You managed to take a great photo. Birds are very difficult to photograph. Henryk

Re: Great photo !

Thank you. They are indeed. They never seem to want to be still. This one also kept moving around and foraging for bugs.

Thank you. The Bluebird was the one who chose this background for his photo ;)

Re: As usual

As usual you are very kind. Yes, we do have quite a few of them actually. Females are not as colorful and don't stand out as much. I have seen bluebirds also at much lower elevations.
