A small bird characterized by a blue back, robinred breast, and rusty throat. A cavity nester, the Bluebird takes over an old woodpecker tree cavity, a snag or a man-made nest box. Bluebirds can be seen perching, waiting to drop down to the ground for insects. Our Bluebird is a common local year round resident whose population has swelled with the increased availability of man-made nest boxes.
