This is a medium size songbird with a large, round head. Its wings and tail are blue and has a reddish-orange chest.

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.

This is a very long-billed bird that loves mealworms. He resembles a brown thrasher without the long tail feathers.
