Bluebird GPS

Bluebirds are so bright and beautiful!  We have many of them around our farm.  Yesterday, this poor little guy's GPS lead him astray....right into our picture window.  Ouch!! 

This actually happens a lot.  We are always hearing birds crashing into the window.  (Weird!?! I was just thinking the other day how dirty that window is.)  Maci and I were in the house and heard the bluebird hit, so we went to check it out.

It stayed there for quite a while...dazed, but it did eventually fly away.  (This is not always the case.)


  1. haha...that happens to us all the time too. Only had one that knocked them out.
    Also, I think that bird was an indigo bunting, not a blue bird. I always love seeing those birds cause they have such a beautiful blue color!

  2. I just Googled bluebirds and indigo buntings. I think you're right, oops. We do have a lot of bluebirds too, but it looks like they have the brown on their bellies.

  3. That's a beautiful blue though! I'm not sure I've ever seen a bird that blue!

  4. Poor thing. Glad he survived. I have seen some blue birds (or indigo buntings) up in my orchard, but I never seem to have my camera when it is around. It must know and be camera shy.
