Eastern Bluebirds and the Warner Park Eastern Bluebird Nest Project with Laura Cook and Diana McLusky

February 3, 2020

Attracting and observing wildlife has become one of Americas leading outdoor recreation activities.  Each year untold millions are invested in bird seed, bird houses and other paraphernalia to  indulge our fascination with wild birds.  Along with the hummingbird, the Eastern Bluebird has become a popular object of this activity.  Today we learn a little bit about the Eastern Bluebird.  We also learn about the decades long dedication of staff and volunteers at the Warner Park Nature Center (Metro Nashville Division of Parks and Recreation) to providing nesting boxes at the park and conducting research on the habits of this fascinating species. Also, we get a little advice for homeowners about how to be successful  in attracting bluebirds to the yard at home.
