1 – Consistency and devotion in love

Bluebirds are typically monogamous throughout the breeding season and may mate for more than one season.

If you see a bluebird related to love, it can be a sign of loyalty and devotion in a relationship.

When you’re feeling insecure or uncomfortable about your relationships, a blue bird may appear to remind you that all is well on that front right now.

2 – Be happy

have you ever heard The Bluebird of Happiness?

It’s a song that perfectly portrays the theme of this bullet point. Bluebirds are cultural reminders of happiness.

Bluebirds may appear to remind you be happy. Find reasons to appreciate who and what is around you. Follow your ray of light. Discover what makes you smile.

Life is short, find your blue bird of happiness. As they say in the lyrics:

And if it doesn’t look so happy,

Just show a little fight,

For every bit of darkness

There is a little light.

For every bit of hate

There’s a little bit of love involved.

For every cloudy morning there is a midnight moon above it.

Remember your midnight moon. Find what brings you peace and contentment.

3 – Hello from heaven

Some believe that bluebirds, like cardinals, are little hellos from heaven.

Pay special attention to these cheerful messengers, especially when they appear synchronously, such as on an anniversary, when thinking of loved ones, or at an important moment.

4 – Good news is coming soon

According to Birds & Blooms, bluebirds can be a sign of good luck, meaning: Expect happy news soon.

Maybe they mean good news because some bluebirds migrate in winter. When they return in spring, a season often associated with positive new beginnings, they bring growing crops and warmer weather.

5 – Use existing structures to get the job done

Bluebirds are opportunistic cave breeders. They use existing holes that have formed naturally, thrush hosts or other birds to build their nests.

When thrushes show up, it can be a sign to be opportunistic and to take advantage of existing nooks and crannies. Use existing structures to achieve your goals.

6 – Put nest workers to work

Bluebirds have close-knit families. Bluebird juveniles from the first brood stay around the nest to help their parents raise the second brood. You can even gather food for the younger brood.

If you have adult helpers in your household, teach them how to look after the younger ones and do the chores that come up. Install a helping mindset in everyone who stays close to the nest.

7 – Defend your territory

Both male and female bluebirds will defend their favorite nesting and feeding sites by driving off competitors. Males will also duel with competing males on the fringes of their territory and defend their nest sites.

When a thrush appears, it can be a sign to defend your favorite places and spaces. You can do this gradually, as setting up an area is often a slow process that can take more than a season and a try.

8 – Be social

Bluebirds are very social and form large flocks. These flocks consist of 30 or more birds, including several breeding pairs, their children, and single adults.

When bluebirds show up, it can be a sign to be social with others. Get out, mingle, plan social events, attend social events, make an effort to be friendly and talkative with others.

9 – Ask for what you need

Male mountain bluebirds are often responsible for gathering food while the female tends to the nestlings.

When a male returns with insects, the females open their beaks, flap their wings, and make begging calls to ask for that food.

Sometimes the female bluebird will simply flick her farthest wing from her mate, which is her mate’s cue to fly away for a snack.

When a bluebird appears, it may be a sign that you are asking whoever is providing the resource for what you need. You can do it shyly or demonstrate what you mean with actions and words.
