This week we meet a bird vying for the title of “Cutest Crawly Ever”; the Mountain Bluebird (Sialia currucoides). While Mountain Bluebirds do favor higher altitudes (thus the moniker) they can be seen throughout the Upper Rogue and with the bluer-than-blue coloring of the males, they are hard to miss. The females (pictured right) are brownish/gray with bright blue highlights.
