Eastern Bluebird, February 10, 2016

Wild Bird Wednesday and ABC Wednesday
E is for Eastern Bluebird
Eastern Bluebird, Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, January 29, 2016

Eastern Bluebirds, Sialia sialis, can be found in the eastern half of North America from southeastern Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. They eat a variety of insects, worms, spiders, snails, wild fruits and berries. Their migratory patterns may vary from year to year depending on the availability of Winter food.

Eastern Bluebirds were on the decline, but now their numbers are increasing thanks to wooden nest boxes put up by birding enthusiasts.

Hope you are having a beautiful day!
