Bird ID Please

The woman I may or may not be related to through marriage said this bird was a blue jay which I’m 99% sure is wrong.

Wjo knows what kind of bird these are?

    It looks like an Eastern Bluebird

        These are definitely Eastern Bluebirds.The middle photo shows a male (left)and female (right). They do winter over here, and can be found nesting in man made bluebird boxes in the spring. They have been on the decline due to birds like English Sparrows and Starlings occupying the natural nesting cavities that occur in trees. But humans have been attempting to help bluebirds by placing nesting boxes in likely bluebird habitat. You can see nesting boxes at Ipswich River wildlife sanctuary, the Coolidge reservation in manchester, or the field near the Loop Pond in Rockport. Or go online and order one for yourself-you’ll love having these beautiful birds nest in your yard if you have a low tree and a field…

    it’s a bluebird—very good to have around—they eat tons of bugs—and lay gorgeous little blue eggs

  5. MaryAnne says:

    Yep, its an Eastern Bluebird.

    It’s the Eastern Bluebird. Very beautiful. They have been making a comeback in the last 5 yrs. because folks are putting up nesting boxes.

    I beliee it is an eastern blue bird – and also there have been flocks of robins around eating the winter berries – most of these winter in NE…..silly birds – they should go south.

    Eastern bluebird. Dang! I’ve never seen one this time of year.

    absolutely a blue bird

  11. They’re beautiful. I’m surrounded by the usual Blue Jays, Cardinals and sparrows, all jockeying for the best position around my bird feeder, (It’s easy to see how the term “pecking order” came into being) but I haven’t seen those adorable bluebirds around. Lucky find.

    Eastern Bluebird, very cool….

  13. Susan Haldt says:

    Gorgeous little thing! They simply adore meal worms!

  14. Kim Smith says:

    Great shots!!! In the middle photo, the bird on the left is a male and the less brightly colored bird on the right is the female

    Most bluebirds in our area winter in the central and southern US but because of climate change we see them more frquently in our backyards in the winter. Bluebirds are primarily insectivores and rely heavilly on berries in the winter.

    Positively an Eastern Bluebird! :-). Odd to be this north this time of year.

    Eastern Bluebirds for sure!

  17. Mandy M says:

    You are so lucky to have seen these Bluebirds! People are always trying to spot them – they are so pretty – great photos!

  18. Beau Sinkler says:

    Great find! I’m so jealous…haven’t seen a bluebird for about 30 years…have been on the west coast all that time. So glad to know they are in this area. Thanks for sharing your photos, all three are terrific!

  19. Susan Hedman says:

    Eastern Bluebirds. We have them nesting in Magnolia Woods by the wetland at the entrance.

  20. Albert meulendyke says:

    Are you sure that’s a bluebird?! Just kidding, great shots. Hopefully we will see more this spring in Wisconsin!

  21. Marty Luster says:

    The Eastern Bluebird is the State Bird of New York. For a time they were quite rare in that state, but for several years prior to our move to Gloucester in 2010 we saw them fairly frequently. I’m glad they followed us here.

  22. Anne Lubbers says:

    We often get little flocks of Eastern Bluebirds here in the winter in southwest Michigan. They show up, hang around for a while, and move on. They are very common here in the summer.

  23. Linda Colman says:

    Eastern Bluebird. As if you didn’t already know.

  24. Vicki says:

    That means Spring isn’t far behind! Next we’ll soon robins!

  25. Dale Morris says:

    Definitely bluebirds!

  26. E.J. says:

    Very cool. I’ve only seen bluebirds on a couple of occasions. Very lucky catch and wonderful to see. Bluebird of happiness.

  27. boudrea3 says:

    I’ve seen winter flocks of them in the forest – certainly stunning when they all flock together. Some of them migrate and some don’t – they flock up like the robins do in the winter. so nice to see them – and so memorable.
