Eastern Bluebird

Sialia sialis

Description:

Males have brilliant blue above with reddish breast and white below. Female is similar but less brilliant.

Habitat:

Open grasslands with scattered trees.

Notes:

Bluebirds were rare when I was growing up on a farm in southwestern Wisconsin in the 1960s and 70s. Their populations are doing much better now due to installation of thousands of nest boxes.

Should be arriving here in east central Minnesota any day now. We've still got lots of snow, but much of that will be melting by this weekend.
