"Nature's Green is Gold, Blue, White and Black..."

This juvenile Eastern Bluebird (Sialia sialis) is resting for a moment. Weighing only about an ounce, adults average 7 inches in length with a wingspan of 11 inches. Eastern Bluebirds can live for six to 10 years. They begin breeding the summer after they are hatched.
