Since colonial times, the blue robins have been one of our best loved birds, symbols of hope and happiness.
They are true harbingers of spring and signal the beginning of the end of a usually dreary winter.
Very early in spring, bluebirds arrive in some areas and begin nesting in open areas - perhaps along highways, pastures, large lawns or parks, golf courses or country cemeteries. These all provide the perfect habitat for setting up your bluebird trail. Once established, you can expect two, occasionally three, broods in a season.
All bluebirds are secondary cavity nesters. Bluebirds will readily build a nest in a Nest Box, or use a tree cavity, or even an abandoned hole of a woodpecker.
