Eastern Bluebird

Did you know the E. Bluebird (Sialia Sialis) is our state bird?  NOW is the time to prepare nesting sites for next spring "Blue-tiful" birds.  Join us to learn about bluebirds, how to attract them, and make and take your own bluebird house.   Join friends and new community partners as we do home makeovers for the Eastern Bluebirds who inhabit the edges of the forest near our high meadow.  Bluebirds are an eye catching flyer of amazing color. 

We want to encourage the continued habitation of this elegant species not only at the Nature Center, but in nearby open woodland areas as well. Help us build bluebird nest boxes which we will place in the Preserve. The skills you develop can be shared with friends. You will be able to come back to the meadow for years to come watch the number of Eastern Bluebird families grow.

This activity is free and open to the public. Children must be accompanied by an adult.  Space and materials limited. Participants must register by Thursday March 12th, 2015: Call now 716-933-0187 or click on the registration link.
