Eastern Bluebird (Sialia sialis)

I was at the Montgomery Township municipal complex for the farmers’ market and just as I got out of the car I heard the song of the Eastern Bluebird. The X-T3 and XF150-600mmF5.6-8 R LM OIS WR were still in the car from the morning walk around Charles H. Rogers Wildlife Refuge.

The Eastern Bluebirds favoured a few of the trees near the corner of a fenced-in area at the southern end of the parking lot. I didn’t notice it at first but the fence is the boundary for what appears to be a very small cemetery.

The municipal complex houses the Montgomery Township library, a new modern facility that offers a wide range of services. It has a diverse collection of books, e-books, audiobooks, and digital resources available for borrowing. The library also provides access to computers, Wi-Fi, and printing facilities for public use. Additionally, they host various events, workshops, and programs for all age groups, including children's storytimes, adult literacy classes, book clubs, and cultural events. This summer, the Montgomery Friends of Open Space will host their farmers’ market in the parking lot of the library.

The image was backlit. I had to work on recovering the detail in the shadows.
