Bluebird “wing waving”! Wouldn’t it be great to see this?

Wing waving is a form of communication between bluebirds.  It is commonly seen when a male has a box to show the female.  They will both sit on the roof and “wing wave” to each other a few times.  If the female approves of the house, the male will bring in a “token” pine needle or some small grasses.

One of the first things bluebird fledglings learn to do when they leave the nest is to wave their wings.  It is a signal to the parents as to their location on a limb and that they are hungry.  They continue the wing waving into molting and into becoming adults.     [Source:  Rust, Dean C.  The Beloved and Charismatic Bluebird, 2016]
