Bluebird Bird House Plans
populations declined in recent years to as low as
17 percent of their previous numbers in the late
1950s and early 1960s. Currently, Eastern
Bluebird populations are increasing in some
regions as the number of natural nesting sites
has been augmented with artificial nesting boxes.
Good bluebird habitat includes open grassy areas
with little or no understory, perches for
"drop-foraging," and suitable nest
sites close by. Such habitat is found in
orchards, clear-cuts, burned-over areas, and at
the edges of upland woodlands and swamps.
