The Bluebirds are Mad

Monday, December 11, 2006

Our eastern bluebirds remember that we offer them mealworms in the winter. They have not gotten any yet this winter, but they are not about to let us forget about it. This female, and at least one male bluebird, regularly perch on a metal hook on our deck, exactly above where the mealworm dish used to be. And they stare holes in us through the sliding glass door.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't this stare seem to say: "HELLO? Aren't you FORGETTING something?"

You are able to capture the best expressions on bird's faces!

I never suspected a bluebird could possibly look anything like a mourning dove, but this photo has proven me wrong.

We have a pair of mourning doves that eye us through our breakfast window each morning, tossing that very same expression our way as they wait for their daily scoop of seeds. We daren't eat our breakfast before giving them theirs!
