I absolutely love bluebirds. When I moved into my current house, I noticed that there were two bluebird homes outside. My mom and I decided to clean them out one spring. They didn't come. They didn't work for a while. Then, this spring, for the first time in quite a few years, according to our next door neighbors, they came. We saw the entire family go over there with nesting material. Now, we have fledgling chicks crammed in there, who should be learning to fly soon. In our other bluebird home, we have Tufted Titmouse chicks, who are a lot younger than the bluebirds.
Anyways, from observing the bluebirds in my yard, and from reading about them, I've come to know about and love bluebirds.
I have Eastern Bluebirds where I live. They make up the majority of the bluebird species in the lower 48 states.
The Eastern Bluebird prefers rural areas and favors edges of open areas. Meadows, fencelines and roads are some of the most common habitats of the bird
That explains the Eastern Bluebird's preferred habitat.
I love watching them, and can't wait to hear other stories and info about Eastern Bluebirds!
