Mountain Bluebirds Spotted At North Mesa Stables

Mountain Bluebirds were spotted this weekend at the North Mesa Stables in Los Alamos. Unlike other bluebird species, Mountain Bluebirds often hover while foraging; they also pounce on their insect prey from an elevated perch. In winter, the species often occurs in large flocks wandering the landscape feasting on berries, particularly those of junipers, according to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Photo by Trisha Ancell
