What type of bird?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, What type of bird do you think this is?  The picture was taken in the evening in Central Texas on June 1, 2020.

The only bird in your area with chestnut extending halfway down the breast is Eastern/Western Bluebird, and I'm assuming Eastern is the more common species here.

That's right it was an Eastern Bluebird.  I forgot until you just mentioned it.  It was cloudy that day and camera wouldn't focus on color.  Thank you Benjamin.

Cedar Waxwing? But I'm going to wait for more IDs

This was my first reaction as well, but once I zoomed in on the face I saw the bluebird
