FunFacts

The Mountain Bluebird is the state bird for Idaho and Nevada.

When looking for food, the Mountain Bluebird mimics the hawk as they fly over the land looking for food.

The bluebird is part of many Native American legends and is the symbol of:

  • hope
  • the essence of life and beauty
  • love
  • renewal

In nesting season, the Mountain Bluebird lays the most eggs of all bluebirds. 

The National Audubon Society states, “Mountain Bluebirds were originally named the Arctic Bluebird.”

They have the largest wingspan of any other bluebird.

They take care of their young even though they leave the nest to teach them how to fly and find food so they can survive on their own properly.
