But it turns out that birds employ many of the same strategies I was using inside my house—plus a couple...

Photos from North American Bluebird Society's post

Fun series of captures today (1/29/21) from David Kinneer, Fredericksburg VA. Here is his narrative: “The wind really complicates things for the birds as they move about. Sometimes a gust is so strong it blows them off their perch. It messes up my photos too. Here the bird's right wing shows the influence of the wind as he jumps from a lower branch. As you can see in the second photo, he does make it. But he didn't stay up there long.”
