Palm Berry Bluebirds
Western Bluebirds stop by for some palm berries. As I mentioned before, these small thrushes are very graceful fliers on their longish wings, which they often close and simply torpedo through the air, especially when flying from a high perch to a lower one.
In late afternoon hours, I saw W. bluebirds perched on wires here and there. Later, I watched as these scattered birds came together in the air, forming a swooping squadron of 25-30 birds that set off to the NE at about 50-75 meters altitude, in loose formation, but much tighter than Robins, to which the bluebirds are related.
