Believe it or not, bluebirds are now scoping out neighborhoods to raise a family. They are looking for potential home sites (such as tree cavities or nest boxes) and reliable food sources. A bird’s primary consideration when choosing a nesting site is security, protection from predators and proximity to food.
As early as February in our region Bluebirds first display nesting behavior. They will start by sitting on telephone wires or perched atop a nest box, calling out in a short, wavering voice or abruptly dropping to the ground after an insect. Male Eastern Bluebirds are a brilliant royal blue on the back and head, and warm red-brown on the breast. Blue tinges in the wings and tail give the grayer females an elegant look.
Bluebirds being cavity nesters will readily use an artificial nest box if you set one out in your back yard. Habitat and nest cavities had been disappearing for many years, but bluebirds have made an incredible come back due to thousands of bluebird nest boxes being installed across the country.
We at Wild Birds Unlimited have a large variety of Nesting Boxes available for you to choose from plus all the necessary hardware for mounting it out in your back yard. In many cases location in your yard is key to the success of attracting Bluebirds to your location. Come in and talk to one of our Back Yard Birding Specialist who can best advise you where to locate you nesting box to maximize your chances of attracting a pair of these wonderful birds.
Calcium is the most challenging mineral for birds because when they need it, they need large quantities and they need it right away. This is mainly during nesting time for egg laying ans well as chick development. The amount of calcium in their natural diet of seeds and insects is often inadequate and they must seek calcium-rich foods as a supplement. Ask us about the many bird foods we offer which include calcium to help your nesting birds
Our source of calcium is from oyster grit or limestone dust. Both are finely ground and easily consumed by small songbirds.
Be a seasonally savvy friend to your birds by providing them with the extra calcium they require during nesting season.
