A Wrong Turn and an Eastern Bluebird

Eastern Bluebird
Yesterday on my way home from Orlando Wetlands Park, I decided to drop by Home Depot in Oviedo to get some grilling supplies for Mother's Day.  On the way there I saw a Swallow-tailed Kite flying low over the trees.  Since I had my camera with me, I decided to pull over to photograph my favorite raptor.  Unfortunately, by the time I pulled over to a side street and walked to the area, it was gone.  So after buying my grill supplies, I decided to drive back the same way to see if I could find it.  I accidentally turned onto a different street, but as I stopped to turn around, I looked at the powerlines and found an Eastern Bluebird perched on the lines.  This the first bluebird I've seen in Seminole County, so I stopped to take a few pictures.  A mockingbird came by and chased it into a tree (for no reason I might add), and then a second bluebird landed in the same spot and stayed there until the mockingbird was tired of the presence of that one too.  So I'm very thankful now for wrong turns.
