Called the "blue robin" by early American settlers because of its rust-colored breast and blue back and tail, the Eastern bluebird is easily attracted to homes and can bring hours of enjoyment. In this four-page publication you will find information on the life history of the Eastern bluebird and its population decline during the last 60 years. You will also find illustrated instructions on building and placing human-made bluebird nest boxes, a list of berry and fruit plantings that will help feed local bluebirds, as well as information on how to help increase Eastern bluebird populations.
