Bluebird Rescue: Country Life Nature Guide

Explains the nesting, feeding, and breeding habits of bluebirds and instructs how to protect this endangered species.

Where have all the bluebirds gone? That was the big question only a few years ago. Now, with the help of people just like you, bluebirds are starting to come back to America. Once one of the most common birds in the land--and certainly the most popular--these beautiful little red, white and blue birds are thriving once more, flashing across the summer skies, symbolizing springtime, love, hope and happiness.

In this book, you will learn about the three species of bluebirds, their lives and their habits. You will also find out how to help bluebirds survive. They can't do it on their own. Without assistance from us, they would vanish from the earth.

This book tells us how to build special bird houses for them, how to put them up in just the right places, what to feed them, and how to protect them from their many enemies, such as house sparrows, starlings, raccoons, cats and snakes.

Through these efforts, we all can take part in rescuing bluebirds.
