West Nile Virus

California is home to both the western and mountain bluebirds. Both species had benefited in parts of their ranges by active bluebird trails established to support their population.


Male western bluebird

The western bluebird can be found throughout California. Red = summer range, Green = year-around, Blue = winter range


Male mountain bluebird

The mountain bluebird can be found throughout the state of California in appropriate habitat.
Red = summer range, Green = year-around, Blue = winter range

In The Backyard:
Bluebirds can be attracted to peanut butter mixes, suet and fruit. Raisins soaked in hot water to soften them are well received. The bluebird's special favorite is mealworms.

Nesting:
In California nesting can commence early spring and can continue well into the summer. Two and sometimes three broods may be produced. Watch for house sparrows trying to use the next box and immediately remove any house sparrow nesting material.

Visit the main Birdzilla.com Web site for information nest boxes and management, bluebird trails, range maps and much more on these popular birds. The Sam's Guide to Bluebirds CD-ROM and DVD provides complete information on bluebird trails, boxes, care and feeding and a whole lot more.
