During the Noon hour on January 15, while sitting stationary in my Jeep, a pair of Bluebirds
were in the area along with several Dark-Eyed Juncos, Black-Capped Chickadees, a Ruby-crowned
Kinglet and a White-Breasted Nuthatch. 

One of the Bluebirds was stationary about 65 feet away
and afforded us several different poses from that angle.  Using an HQ C-180 teleconverter,
these shots were taken through an open window.
