Are There Any Bluebirds?

separator

A recent visitor to the Central Florida Bird Watcher's web site sent an email asking about the possibility of seeing Bluebirds in the Palm Coast area. This was our response.


The Bluebird is making a comeback but still a lot of work needs to be done. Loss of habitat is the prime reason for the decline.

The Space Coast Audubon Society has participated in establishing a local presence and helps in maintaining the Bluebird Trail.

The Bluebird Trail is an ongoing project to re-establish bluebirds locally by placing and maintaining nesting boxes in suitable habitat. Once common throughout its range, the population of Eastern Bluebirds has plummeted, due in part to a lack of adequate nesting cavities. Our Bluebird Trail consists of over 80 nest boxes placed throughout Brevard County.

Bluebirds are now using these boxes in addition to flycatchers, woodpeckers and even flying squirrels!

If you would like to help in re-establishing bluebirds in this area please contact the Indian River Audubon Society.

Are there Bluebirds in the Palm Coast area. We just bought a lot there and would like to know. I've just gotten them back in my yard in VA. after years of absence and hope I can have them there.

Thank you.
