LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Today on "THV 11 News at Noon" we are spotlighting the eastern bluebird.

Here is a brief description of the bird from The Cornell Lab of Ornithology:

"Most of the country drives during an eastern North American summer will turn up a few Eastern Bluebirds sitting on telephone wires or perched atop a nest box, calling out in a short, wavering voice or abruptly dropping to the ground after an insect. Marvelous birds to capture in your binoculars, male Eastern Bluebirds are a brilliant royal blue on the back and head, and warm red-brown on the breast. Blue tinges in the wings and tail give the grayer females an elegant look."
