The bluebirds are a medium-size bird in the bird family, largely feed on insects or feed on both animal and vegetable substances. These birds are in the genus Sialia of the thrush household Turdidae. These are one of the comparatively few thrush genera to be confined to the Americas. As the figure implies, these are appealing birds with dark blue, or dark blue and crimson, feathers. Female birds have a duller color than males, although various shades and patterns are related and there is no evident disagreement in size between sexes. Bluebirds raise two or three families of three to six insect-devouring young each year, from March through August. The female builds a neat, cup-shaped nest of grass. She lays one sky-blue egg each day for three to six days and incubates them for two weeks. Both adults feed the young for two and a half weeks. When the young leave the nest the male teaches them to hunt, while the female takes a rest or builds a new nest.If you are serious about bird watching. Get a good pair of bird watching Binoculars!
