Mountain Bluebird

One of the first signs of Spring in Southern Alberta, is the reappearance of Mountain Bluebirds showing up in the prairies, and along farm lands, where they come to nest in bluebird boxes.

 

This is a female Mountain Bluebird which you can tell apart from the males who are a striking blue color throughout, whereas as you can see in this image the females are mostly grey/brown with some small patches of blue on its chest and the tips of the wings.
