Bird Identification

by John Sorensen
(Athens, Georgia)

I am fairly well versed in American ornithology, but last summer my wife and I both saw a beautiful aqua blue and a sort of aqua marine bird with some white highlights throughout its form. My best guess is that it was about seven inches in length and was attempting to land on one of my bluebird houses; however,our blue birds went on the attack to our disappointment, forcing the unidentified bird to dive into a hayfield behind our house. I tried to get "a bead" on where it had landed and then I proceeded to the spot. I was a little off the mark, but did see it fly off in a most graceful and lilting manner, almost swallow-like. It was not a parakeet. I live just north of Athens, Georgia which is in northeast Georgia. I do have a bird in mind from the west coast that it might be, but I would prefer more expert input. Thanks, John Sorensen
