Bluebird

Bluebird Variant names:
Blue Jay, Blue Jaybird, Blue Jaywalker

Scientific name:
Birdicus azurus

Distinguishing characteristics:
Blue feathers; a depressed, sad demeanor; a marked tendency to use foul fowl language (see song).

Song:
Bleeping bleepity bleep bleep

Fun facts:

  • Most bluebirds aren't really blue. Just take our word for this.

  • There are so many Bluebirds in the world, of such a dizzying variety of shapes and sizes, that it is thought that Noah may have mistakenly taken seven times seventy Bluebirds and its mate aboard the ark instead of the seven that was commanded.

  • Bluebirds are excellent mimics. A Cornell University ornithologist documented the case of a Bluebird that did spot-on impersonations of Howard Cosell, Richard Nixon, and Groucho Marx. The bird's Marx impersonation was flawed, however, as it often confused Groucho with Karl Marx, making nonsensical references to economic theory and the "disenfranchisement of the proletariat."
