Sunday afternoon I did a rough count of the Eastern Bluebirds on my cousins farm and was very pleased with the numbers. It is a Bluebird paradise! I estimate between 50-60 young birds. This trend has been evident in some other areas I visit and it is good news for the Bluebird population.
The "youngsters" were full of vim and vigor engaging in games of chase despite the heat. Rest periods between chases were needed to cool.
