Summary

BLUEBIRDS IN YOUR BACKYARD!

From coast to coast, in every state and province across North America, homeowners can attract bluebirds to their backyards and nearby open areas to nest. In this book, a select group of "bluebird monitors" reveal how it's done: how you can attract bluebirds and, once they begin nesting in your backyard, how you can help ensure that nestlings develop and fledge successfully.

Rural yards, suburban yards, even some small city yards can host bluebirds. And yards that don't suit bluebirds may attract chickadees, tree swallows, or one of the other bird species that nest in boxes. This book includes information on all 10 of the cavity-nesting birds most often reported to The Birdhouse Network of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

The experts who offer advice in this book are affiliated with the North American Bluebird Society or are participants in The Birdhouse Network of Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Some of the contributors monitor hundreds of boxes and have fledged thousands of bluebirds; others monitor only a few backyard boxes but have learned many of the secrets of bluebird behavior by observing them closely and continuously.
