Eastern Bluebird Sialia sialis
This is a medium size songbird with a large, round head. Its wings and tail are blue and has a reddish-orange chest.
Eats mainly insects and some small fruits. Can be attracted to feeding stations with specialized wooden bird feeders using meal worms. These beautiful birds can also be attracted with water by using bird baths.
The male has a blue head, back, tail and wings with a reddish chest. The female has the same color pattern only duller.
Bluebirds build their nests in a natural tree cavity or abandoned woodpecker hole 3 to 20 feet above the ground. The nest is made from grass, plant stems, pine needles, hair and feathers. Breeding pairs will eagerly accept a bluebird bird house as a nesting site. The clutch will contain 3 to 6 eggs and incubation takes 16 to 21 days.
