Eastern Bluebird

To paraphrase an old cliché: “The skilled & tenacious gets the worm.”

Perhaps America’s favorite conservation comeback story. A citizen-driven, grassroots movement to provide nest boxes to replace lost natural cavities – lost to less of them & the ones left being taken by starlings & house sparrows – provided the foundation for these ‘Bluebirds of Happiness’ to recover.

To help the recovery continue, keeping our yards and public spaces insect & worm friendly provides the protein needed to raise two and sometimes three broods per breeding season.

Making us all happy.
