So many insect eating birds have adapted to barbed wire fence lines. They fly a ways and then perch, and fly some more and perch again in their search for a meal. So many bird species have become compatible with agriculture. You can drive down forest roads and hike across the open desert in designated wildlife areas like the Badlands area east of Bend, Oregon and see very little birdlife. On the other hand driving down the farm roads for an hour i saw Prairie Falcons, American Kestrels, Bluebirds, Red-tailed Hawks, 100s of Robins, Starlings, sparrows, quail, and a Ferruginous Hawk.
It’s amazing that these Mountain Bluebirds, which I was following down the road, could find any insects at all on this cold windy March evening. Thankfully, one or two decided to cooperate and let me take some pics from my truck window. They certainly are a vibrant blue!
