I’ve never seen bluebirds ever. But I kept seeing birds flying around the window when I had the blinds open. They’re after bugs caught in the corner of the house. I thought they were just a bunch of sparrows. So I finally pulled up the blinds so I could watch them while I was typing on my story. Yes, I was really writing. Trying to write. Hey, I got my word count and one of the promo blogs done. 🙂
But I was so surprised to see bluebirds, I had to try and take pictures of them. This is through a screened window, so not the best shots, but still, I was thrilled. But then I saw another bird, not sure what it was. A mockingbird also flew in there, but the bluebirds chased him off. And then I’m not sure what the other bird was on the roof. It looked different from the other on the roof that I believe is the same bird underneath the eves, a small gray and black banded bird with pale yellow feathers on it’s belly and throat. It looks white in some pictures, but it was actually yellow.
It’s not a sparrow. I have tons of those and it’s not the same.
Okay, back to writing. Have a super great Saturday!!!

The bird in the top photo looks like an Eastern Phoebe to me.
The one in the fifth photo looks like a member of the flycatcher family as well, and could easily be an Eastern Phoebe also (it could even be the same individual bird as in the first photo; you’d know better about that). It’s not as clear as the first photo, though, so there are some other possible flycatchers it could be. But Eastern Phoebe is a good guess.
The bird in the sixth photo, with the stripes and the yellow throat that you reported, looks like a Yellow-rumped Warbler.
Thanks for giving me a chance to do some Texas birdwatching remotely. 🙂
Thanks, John!! I posted them on Facebook, and that’s what several said, that the one looked to be an Eastern Phoebe. I’ve never seen one before, so that was really cool. That’s neat on the Warbler. I’ll have to keep trying to get a better picture! Thanks so much for the help! 🙂
