Easern Bluebird

The bluebird’s bright beauty and cheerful song inspire the pure joy of nature. A species of open spaces, bluebirds benefited from both Native American and European settlers who cleared the land for farming. They found nesting cavities in orchards, fence posts, and abandoned woodpecker holes along forest edges. In turn, bluebirds helped farmers by eating insects and crop pests like grasshoppers, beetles and snails.
Look for bluebirds around farms, gardens, orchards and parks. They perch conspicuously on utility wires and fences, then suddenly drop down to catch insects in a flash and flutter of blue.
