Mountain Bluebirds are an incredible site for winter-weary eyes.  They really are very blue when seen against the springtime sagebrush. This pair easily caught my eye while I was out exploring a sage area looking for Loggerhead Shrikes.  These two were being creative in their nest location as they need a cavity of sorts and the trees were not so close.  They decided to take over an electrical box hook-up at an abandoned RV camp.  I have passed by this location and never took a second look as it was cluttered with human garbage and just rather ugly!  This pair of bluebirds were quite entertaining as they set up housekeeping.  They were also very cooperative for this photographer and it was amazing to see something so beautiful in this rather ugly mess humans have left behind.
