A bluebird can spot caterpillars and insects in tall grass at the remarkable distance of over 50 yards.
Bluebirds consume about four grams of food per day, or about 12% of their body weight. This is equivalent to a 200 pound human eating 24 pounds of food each day.
Bluebirds can fly at speeds up to 45 miles per hour if necessary.
Unpaired male bluebirds may sing up to 1,000 songs per hour but average a more reasonable rate of four to five hundred songs per hour.
