male Western Bluebird at White Lake

I saw this bird fly across the road and land in a sagebrush so I quickly pulled the car over to what little shoulder there is on White Lake Rd. I tried taking an awkward shot out of the window on the wrong side of the car but that didn't work and when I realized that the bluebird was still sitting there, I got out of the car, and it still didn't fly away. I even inched my way closer and closer to it and it still didn't fly. It seemed to be listening to another bird nearby. What a beautiful bird!
