Eastern Bluebird Photo by Jennifer Smith.
Bluebirds are one of the birds that everyone wants in their yard. Here are some interesting facts!
~Bluebirds can spot bugs and caterpillars from a distance of over 50 yards.
~ Bluebirds will eat about 12% of their body weight in insects each day. That would be like a 200 pound person eating 24 pounds of food!
~ Bluebirds are capable of flying at speeds up to 45 MPH!
~ When a predator approaches the female bluebird will let out a warning cry in a effort to bring a protective male to help.
