Enter Bird's Name in Search Box:


The bluebirds are members of the thrush family and are known for their colourful feathers and cheerful songs.

The bluebirds almost disappeared from North America as they were unable able to compete for nesting territories that were taken over by more aggressive birds. Through the help of individuals who set up programs, building and installing birdhouses along fence lines and roadways, the bluebird has been able to survive. Thanks to these special people, the bluebird is once more a common sight to see.

There are three types of bluebirds in North America. As the name suggests, the Eastern Bluebird is found in eastern North America and the opposite is true for the Western Bluebird, whose range is western North America. The Mountain Bluebird, is also a western bird and lives in the higher mountain ranges.
