    Saw them at the box about two weeks ago while it was still nice and warm. These are a brighter blue than those we have in the spring. Not sure if its the same ones with winter plumage or a different family. The bluebirds in the spring are not aggressive in protecting their young but these winter birds will dive bomb you ! May try for pics later.

    I am good at bobbing and weaving and an expert on ducking for cover.

    What kind of bluebird are they? We have Blue Jays here year round but don't get a seasonal blue one.
