The eastern bluebird is the most widespread of the three bluebirds. Although it is mostly "eastern" in our area, its total range extends south to Nicaragua. A high percentage of eastern bluebirds in North America today nest in birdhouses put up for them along bluebird trails. When they are not nesting, these birds roam the countryside in small flocks.
Nancy Percivall, Committee Chair for Horticulture, talked about the Environmental Trail Project at Generals Highway Park – a 2015 youth project led by Girl Scout Gold Award candidate, Alex Hunt.
Members met at Generals Highway Corridor Park located at 1758 Crownsville Road, Crownsville. Pat and Juanita Tate, members of the Anne Arundel Bird Club, led us on a walking tour of the bluebird trail and let us take a glimpse into their nesting habits.
