ERHP, we now seldom even get them (any bluebirds) on a post let alone opportunities to try flight shots. That is really nice.
A side note here. Sometimes a few waterbirds end up in some Alberta oil producers pond and all the well meaning environmentalists raise a huge cry, it can be 5 birds and it's on the news. Recently, I read that pet cats are killing multiple millions of birds in N A and represent a threat to some populations. Not news worthy, of course!
I'm all for protecting our environment but sometimes I think the birds have more brains than the people.
