Competition for nest sites is fierce, watch for the perched male bluebird with the suave "wing-tip" - it's his pick-up line for attracting a mate. Considered early nesters, blues will average 2 to 3 broods per season. Open area is best with trees or fence nearby to perch. They'll guard the nest all day while hunting insects. Extremely territorial, they're worse than kids during nesting season! One birdhouse in front and one in the back is best.

During cold and/or wet weather, their diet can be supplemented with mealworms, sunflower chips or suet. Mix your own Bluebird Delight with this easy recipe.

Fresh water rocks! new birdbath, old bird bath, plant saucer... whatever! Keep it clean and shallow for bird's safety. Optimal depth is just 2 to 3" maximum. A few river rocks or large stones in the bath serves birds well.

Hummingbirds are on the move too, well into the southeast. It won't be long before orioles and all migratory friends are here for the season - whether the weather decides to cooperate or not!

Check Learner.org for Spring 2018 maps of all migratory fliers and know when to expect hummingbirds, orioles, butterflies and more! The key is being ready before they arrive!
