The blåmes and its characteristics

The suggested new Swedish symbol, introduced in the previous blog entry, will hereafter be referred to as a blåmes (plural blåmesar). The coloring aside, the following characteristics make the blåmes particularly well-suited for the honor of representing Sweden:
  • Intelligent and industrius - The famous example is how blåmesar managed to develop a method for removing caps from milk bottles in order to get to the cream at the top.
  • Sexually equal - Both male and female dress the same, and they share child-rearing duties.
  • Nonmigratory - Secretly knows that Sweden is the best place to live.
  • Dependent on social welfare in harsh times - Many blåmesar wouldn't survive the winter without human intervention. Bird feeding in the winter has allowed the blåmesar to settle much farther north than would've been otherwise possible.
