Bluebirds

MVFN Nature Notebook

Bluebirds are back, several local reports from early April are recorded here

Clayton

On April 2, 2017 Eastern Bluebirds were seen by Howard and Mary Robinson:  “our Eastern Bluebirds are back on this bright Spring day.  Hope everyone has their MVFN bluebird boxes installed and/or cleaned out from last year.  We also saw and heard our first Eastern Pheobe of the season today.”

One pair of Eastern Bluebirds were checking out an MVFN nesting box.

Below are some of the fantastic photos sent in by Howard and also some from Lise Balthazar and Nat Capitanio in Sheridan Rapids.
