Each night, there are 4 Eastern Bluebirds tucking themselves into crooks and crannies of a locust tree behind my house. They gather on the tree in the afternoon and emerge at first light. I can't tell them apart so I wonder if they each go to the same spot or if they vie for the choicest spots.
I've been watching two of them tuck in from my "office" (aka dining room table) while I'm working from home. Two others stay in spots on the tree that I can't see, but they all gather for a few minutes in the morning. It's been going on for at least two weeks, probably longer. I doubt it's unusual but I have never seen it before, and it's so much fun to watch!
