Our beach-loving Mountain Bluebird, take 2

As I’ve written previously (here and here), I spotted this lovely male Mountain Bluebird (Merlebleu azuré / Sialia currucoides) on Vancouver’s Locarno Beach on March 21. I saw it again a week later. As it ends up, this gentleman stuck around for about three weeks in total, and I got another occasion to see to photograph it (stay tuned… they may be the best yet!).

Both photos were taken March 27, with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED. Not baited, called in or set up.

  •  Top: ISO 400, 300mm, f/6.3, 1/1600
  •  Bottom: ISO 400, 300mm, f/5.6, 1/1250
