What you have there is two very nice pics of a female Mountain Bluebird. Love that first one with the beautiful bokeh Matt. Well done on both.

Thanks, HBG, edited the tags on my images for this one. I was not sure, thought it was more of the swallow family, not the bluebird family. But then I looked it up in my trusty "Birds of Alberta" guide, and you are right, of course.

Nice ones Matt. I like the inclusion of the fence.
