Detailed Information:
One of our loveliest local songbirds is the Eastern Bluebird (Sialia Sialis). Unfortunately, they have been greatly reduced in numbers. This is due, in part, to a loss of nesting sites and habitat. Bluebirds are cavity nesters. Unlike their cousins the robin, who will nest in a bush or tree, the bluebird uses abandoned woodpecker homes or natural cavities in dying trees. People often cut down these dead trees. Happily, bluebirds have adapted readily to using nesting boxes.

Twelve nesting boxes have been placed around the school district's campuses. Four were made by fifth graders when they attended the Intermediate School's annual Outdoor Education Program.
