Eastern bluebird of happiness

This morning, on my way home from errands, I saw an Eastern bluebird on the pasture fence along the road about a third of a mile from my house. That distinctive bird of bright blue with red made my heart happy!

My ancient, unused, beginner birder's knowledge was gained in Pennsylvania, so I have no idea whether here in Oklahoma I might see a Mountain Bluebird. From what I can remember of that wonderful bright blue and where the red breast color was, though, I'm pretty sure that it was an Eastern bluebird. Love it!
