General description.

The Eastern Bluebird is one of the most colorful of the more common birds, and while common still, bluebird numbers have declined greatly over the years due to crowding out from other expanding birds and what some claim are temperature changes. In flight, the beautiful, multicolored bluebird shines a bright, almost iridescent blue and is one of the more spectacular backyard birds to observe. You can spot them alone as well as in flocks during migration season. The eastern bluebird nests readily in a variety of backyard birdhouses.

Population and distribution.

Permanent in the south from Texas east, and a summer resident north and east of Oklahoma.
