Bird of the Week: Mistletoebird

By December 20, 2012

Follow me on:

There can be no better bird to feature this close to Christmas than the mistletoebird. A beautiful flowerpecker native to Australia, this bird feeds almost exclusively on mistletoe berries as an adult, and its boldly colored plumage is as decorative as any holiday bauble.

What birds do you associate most with the holiday season? Share your favorites in the comments!
