Eastern Bluebird, Sialia sialis. Bluebirds are a common sight in the northern United States in warmer months, but this member of the thrush family typically winters in the southeast. The state of Vermont, on the Canadian border where this photo was taken, is one of the northernmost places you will find this species during the snowy winters. This male bluebird searches for a shriveled berry on a Staghorn Sumac (Rhus typhina) bush, one of the few plants that holds onto its fruit so late in winter.
