Sing It, Willie!

I love Lazuli Buntings!  

I had 15 of these blue beauties at my seed feeder yesterday.  Makes me think of Willie Nelson singing "Blue Skies"    

Blue skies smiling at me
nothing but blue skies do I see
Bluebirds singing a song
Nothing like bluebirds all day long.

I never saw the sun shining so bright
never saw things going so right.
Noticing the days hurrying by
when you’re in love, oh my how they fly.
Blue days all of them gone
Nothing but blue skies from now on...

I am so happy to see that Spring is here!  While the little birds are blue, the very sight of them lifts my blues.  Hope you enjoy these little Lazuli Buntings as much as I do in My Mountain Green.

I need me a Lazuli bunting! Love the bird and the song! That song makes me think of Bing Crosby though, and White Christmas, LOL! You don't need anymore white I'm sure!
