Bluebird
 
“So the Bluebirds have contracted, have they, for a house?
And a next is under way for little Mr. Wren?”
“Hush, dear, hush! Be quiet, dear! quiet as a mouse.
These are weighty secrets, and we must whisper them.”
        Susan Coolidge—Secrets.

In the thickets and the meadows
Piped the bluebird, the Owaissa.
On the summit of the lodges
Sang the robin, the Opechee.
        Longfellow—Hiawatha. Pt. XXI.

      Whither away, Bluebird,
        Whither away?
The blast is chill, yet in the upper sky
  Thou still canst find the color of thy wing,
        The hue of May.
Warbler, why speed thy southern flight? ah, why,
  Thou too, whose song first told us of the Spring?
    Whither away?
        E. C. Stedman—The Flight of the Birds.
