BIRD OF THE WEEK

EASTERN BLUEBIRD

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Sialia sialis
POPULATION: 20 million
TREND: Increasing
HABITAT: Open habitat near trees, such as savannas, forest clearings, pasture, parks, and golf courses.

The vibrant colors and soft, musical warbles of the Eastern Bluebird are a welcome sight on a cold, snowy day. Bluebirds have long been considered harbingers of spring, and their willingness to nest in open, human-modified habitats makes them popular among birders and non-birders alike.

The Eastern Bluebird’s genus, Silia, is part of the larger thrush family, making the bluebird a relative of the Wood Thrush, Bicknell’s Thrush, and Swainson’s Thrush. There are eight recognized subspecies of Eastern Bluebird, found in North America, Mexico, and Central America.
