After my walk and after I cleaned the bathrooms, I put out mealworms, sat in my chair and waited. We have at least a dozen, if not more, Eastern Bluebirds, both adults and juveniles! The feeder shown is the first one I purchased years ago, and was such a success that I have three others that are more decorative, but hold less worms. The black one holds the most food, thus more birds attempt to "belly up to the bar" so to speak. The most I've seen at one time is four at this feeder, but usually only two can feed together comfortably. They mostly get along, but every once in a while they can get rowdy. These birds are a blessing from God, bringing joy to my days, temporarily lifting the burdens I carry. Look for the good; it's there.

He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
Psalm 91:4

Technical note: I started using TV mode (shutter priority) on bird shots. I set it at 800 on cloudy days, then use Auto ISO (range 100-1600). Most of the time it reads the scene correctly, so I'm going to increase the shutter speed when it's a sunny day and try for flight shots.
