Mountain Bluebird

Mountain Bluebirds were abundant last July in the Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Power and Lombardo (1996) write, “The Mountain Bluebird is probably the most aberrant of all thrushes.” They think this bluebird is more like a small kestrel. This bluebird hovers while foraging and consumes more insects than do other thrushes. And, like other bluebirds, but unlike other thrushes, they nest in cavities, both natural and human-made.
