Wooing and Pursuing

Mating season is upon us, and the male Bluebird is doing his darndest to capture the attention and win the affection of his female counterpart.

His wooing and pursuing have taken the form of striking impressive poses…

…poofing his handsome feathers…

…and frantically twirling his wings, which must have some sort of flirtatious significance in Bluebird behavior since he does this quite often in her presence.

He has also presented three different housing options to her, which was highly entertaining to watch – think House Hunters: Bluebird Edition.

Wherever he goes, he keeps a close eye on her…

…while she waits and watches his antics, and (in my opinion) gives him cause to believe his affections are returned. I mean, doesn’t that stance look a wee bit seductive?

In the end, I think it will be the frequent food offerings he brings her that will seal the deal.

Besides, she’d be a fool to let such a charming fellow fly away.

Attentive, generous, and easy on the eyes…this guy really is the total package!
