Bluebirds Always Bring a Smile
What is it about bluebirds?
They just seem to be one of the most endearing birds to be found anywhere…but why?
Maybe it’s their gentle demeanor. Social by nature and seldom alone, they rarely appear excitable or aggressive and seem to treat each other with the good-natured and calm deportment of an old friend. Truly the type of friend we all wish we had.
Could it be their melodious and enchanting song? Always pleasing to the ear and rarely missing when a family of bluebirds is nearby. Their common call note is a sweet sounding tura or turalee, and their song is a happy, musical phrase that says cheerily…cheer, cheerful, charmer. Step out into the yard and their musical interludes will immediately bring a smile to your face!
Or is it because they are just so incredibly beautiful? It would be hard to find anything as dazzling as a bluebird standing on a fence post in the early morning sun. Its brilliant blue plumage might even be said to rival the sky itself. Indeed it does.
It might be the unique relationship that has develop between us and them. Bluebirds were always cherished by early settlers, but their use of the land resulted in habitat changes that left bluebird numbers in step decline by the mid 1960’s. Recognizing the issue, countless people began erecting nest boxes across the land, much to the benefit of bluebirds. Today, they are commonplace, not only in the countryside, but also in gracing us with their presence in our urban backyards.
Regardless of the reason, many of us cherish our relationship with our bluebirds. They are a true source of joy and our day simply would not be the same without them.
So to keep the relationship going we keep our nest boxes clean and ready and our feeders filled with their favorite foods like our Nesting SuperBlend®, Bark Butter® products and mealworms.
More and more people are successful at attracting bluebirds to their backyards and more people are coming to understand what the phase, “the bluebird of happiness” is all about!
