Bluebirds: What's your part in the bluebird project?


Did you know there i s a housing shortage? Well, there is. It is a shortage of housing for bluebirds. Nesting cavities...for bluebird homes... are in short supply. Competing for these living spacesa are bluebirds, sparrows and starlings.

Here is Christy's website on her part in bringing back bluebirds. What is your role?

Here's the Illinois-Audubon Bluebird Project link

Bluebird monitors across the Illinois are encouraged to send their data at the end of each season to the address below:
Mary Hennen
Bird Division, Field Museum
1400 S. Lake Shore Drive
Chicago, IL 60605
Are you collecting data about the birds near your home? Perhaps your local Audubon Society would be interested in your data.

Blue bird houses soon available ...

Do you know what plants bluebirds like? What kind of environment is suitable for them? How can you find out.
