Attracting bluebirds to your fields and feeders

Attracting bluebirds to your fields and feeders

This voracious insect eater is a good neighbor to have!

Join Sarah Gladu to learn how to feed and house bluebirds. Here in Maine, the best time to install bluebird boxes is in March as soon as the ground thaws.

Sarah will talk about characteristics specific to bluebirds, such as their family life and eating habits, and let you know how to ensure the houses you provide are both attractive to bluebirds and secure from predators. She will also share resources for purchasing bluebird houses, kits, poles and predator guards.

Recorded on March 18, 2021 in Damariscotta, Maine.
