At the birdhouse outside our window in Montana the bright blue male Mountain Bluebird feeds his young at day-break.
Mountain Bluebird Daddy
Blue daddy’s not blue today, soaring
through sunlit skies in search of
berries and beetles he pulls from
the green world for their baby blues.
The Bluebird is not blue today at
crack of dawn, returning to their
brood in the Bluebird house
beneath the telephone wires.
He fills the open beaks with
breakfast brought from Momma’s
kitchen stocked from the pantry
of Nature’s Earth-green Temple.
The Mountain Bluebirds are threatened by changing climate, according to research you can read HERE on The Audubon Society website page.
