I saw a bluebird today! I’ve never in my whole life seen a bluebird. I didn’t know there were bluebirds in Southern California. I was walking back to work after lunch and saw a bird on the lawn. It took off as I approached and I saw an incredibly vivid blue flash.
I might not even have noticed except that I was looking at this guy’s photos and thought “No, that can’t be real. He must have pushed the saturation or something.” Apparently not.
I took a couple of very bad pictures of the underside of the bird. We’ll see how they turn out.
