Western Bluebird

We spent 3 hours birding this morning here at Champoeg StatePark.  Compared to my expectations it was below par.  I was hoping to spot something unusual, or a species we hadn’t identified before, but it was basically the usual.  I remembered that efforts have been made to attract and support Western Bluebirds at this park, and we did see some today. The most curious thing we saw where these blue plastic mayonnaise jar lids attached to the top of fence posts.  I suspect they were for placing food for the bluebirds, like mealworms, but at a distance with only the naked eye, Jeanette and I both mistook them for bluebirds several times.
