Yup. Red throat. Came down to the feeder right next to me whilst I was out with the hounds.

 

:th: That's cool, only one confirmed report in Mass. as I write.

Plymouth, so it's an early one.

 

Conn. is filling in with reports now.

I know habitat is key for bluebirds and perhaps that’s my problem but I put out meal worms and don’t get bluebirds. Any thoughts?

One of the more common birds we see all winter around Western Mass. Always nice to see some color in the winter.

This is 1/26/21

 

We never see them at our house in the summer once the trees leave out.

Well I put them out and the bears take them never to be seen again.  Kinda like a non refillable container

 

:th: We have given up.

 

Wife has a lot of flower gardens so we always have a few around.

We've been here 42 years and have never seen one.

Little guy was around for a while yesterday afternoon, and just buzzed me  whilst the pups were out for their morning pee. I guess it's his yard now.

Only in the past couple of years have I been seeing Bluebirds in Central MA.

 

A Ruby was reported in Bourne yesterday.

And on 4/21 a Baltimore was seen in Grafton MA.

These are generic gifs guys.   

I did make a gif a few years back with a Ruby sipping out of a feeder 

in my hand.   That was pretty special.  

I'll load it up in a couple of days.....meanwhile get your feeders

ready and stay vigilant.   Geez!
