Western bluebirds in Albany

Richard Sintchak

Flock of about 20-25 Western Bluebirds just flew over my rooftop garden in Albany near the corner of Solano Ave and San Pablo Ave and landed in a tree across the street. One beautiful male, slightly separated from the group, landed on the eave of my roof not 10’ from me and did a call/response with the flock a few times while looking down at me and seemingly checking me out. Then they all flew off heading east. Not rare but a nice Saturday afternoon visitor in such an urban environment. :-)
