Pretty birds

A western bluebird perches on a sapling in a field near the Umpqua River in western Oregon near Elkton on Friday, Feb. 15, 2019. According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, western bluebirds are found in open woodland, both coniferous and deciduous. They also live in backyards, burned areas, and farmland, from sea level far up into the mountains.
