It all started on Friday of last week. Mr. M parked his truck outside because the garage is full of summer vehicles i.e. riding lawnmower, golf cart and my car. He just happened to peek out of the den window and saw several Bluebirds sitting on his truck. Every once in a while they would fly around in a frenzy, cheep and then settle back down. Everyday he would complain about this because not only were they sitting on his truck they were also leaving behind, umm let’s just say, they were white washing his ride.
When Mr. M told me about this odd behavior I was convinced they were eating the bugs off his windows and doors. I suggested he wash it and he did. Next day this happened again. This time we went out together and washed it. Within hours, there was a lone bird back again. Mr. M was about fed up with the whole thing and threaten to remove my car from the garage and park his inside. I finally walked over to the window to see for myself. Immediately, I knew what was going on. It was not bugs at all. After days of several birds flying all over his truck this little Western Bluebird was the only one left and he was still trying to court my husband’s truck. To be more accurate, he was courting his own reflection!
He is a determined little fellow. The wind has picked up to about 40 miles per hour and he is still courting. Not only did he try to make out with the truck he also tried to join us in the den. We were watching television when all of a sudden we heard a very distinct knock at the window and a little bluebird’s head peeping in. WOW
