"Bluebird Couple"

A male Mountain Bluebird delivers lunch to his mate, a behavior that makes him romantic to us but valuable to her. While nesting, the male lands nearby with food deliveries, and the female comes off the nest to accept the food. The extra nutrition helps her during egg production and incubation, After their eggs hatch, she feeds the extra food to the ravenous chicks.
