Get an introduction to the beloved Bluebirds with Naturalist Emma Lorusso. Bluebirds populations were on the decline since the late 1800s, but are making a comeback now, partially due to the increased amount of Bluebird boxes that have been built and set up by people!Join us to learn about basic Bluebird behavior including breeding, competition, diet and migration!  Following this talk we will build our own Bluebird boxes for you to take home!
