MALE WESTERN BLUEBIRD (STALIA MEXICANA)(RECOVERED PHOTO), MCINNIS COUNTY PARK,SAN RAFAEL,CA, 11/16/2017
Because this is a recovered photo, part of another photo got into it at the bottom. This seems to happen sometimes with recovered photos. We can ID this bird as a male Western Bluebird as follows:
Bright blue upperparts and head, with brownish patch on back
Orange breast and flanks
Long, blue tail
The Western Bluebird is a new species to our Photographic Life List, which now stands at 906.
