Weekend Birding: Snuggling Bluebirds
While out on a birdwalk last month we noticed two Eastern Bluebirds fly by and land together in a tree.
When I got closer I noticed they were snuggling together. I have no idea why they would do that, it’s not mating season, but they sat there for about five minutes. It was a windy day and they look a little fluffed up. Maybe they were cold.
Bluebirds are found across most of North America. The birds above are the Eastern Bluebird which is found in the eastern US, Mexico and southeastern Canada. Western Bluebirds are seen in parts of the western US and Mexico and the brilliantly colored Mountain Bluebird can be found in the western US, Canada and Mexico.
