Bird #305 — Western Bluebird

sialia (bird) mexicana (of Mexico)

Thursday, April 5, 1984 — 10:30 am

Coronado National Forest, Arizona — Mt. Lemmon

We were on top of the mountain, near Summerhaven, looking at two Pygmy Nuthatches climbing about on a roadside stump. I spotted four (two pairs) Western Bluebirds perched in pines along the road by a small clearning.  Occasionally they switched perches.  One female flew out toward us, stopped and hovered for a few seconds, then returned to her perch.  Most of the time, they just sat and looked around.
