I’ll go ahead and warn you right now. This post is going to have lots of Eastern Bluebird photos, so if you have a slow connection I apologize.
I titled this post training Bluebirds, but make no mistake, they really have trained me. However, just for kicks, assume I could actually train Bluebirds.
Perhaps I might have the female Bluebird lift her leg on command, like this picture.
Or perhaps I would teach the male Bluebird to wave at me with one of its wings.
Or maybe I would tell the male Bluebird to make a mealworm moustache.
Or, how about having the male spread his wings up in the air on command?
Well, that might be some of the things I would teach the Bluebirds if I could actually train them (which I can’t).
Nonetheless, taking pictures of Bluebirds being birds is entertaining (at least for me) as well.
I conclude this post with a young Mockingbird picture. Mockingbirds tend to have a nasty disposition, and this young bird is no different. However, when it tried to intimidate the Bluebirds, they took it straight to the ground. Below is a picture of it sitting on the fence after being taught an important lesson.
