This Eastern Bluebird is enjoying a breakfast of mealworms placed on its nestbox over Memorial Day weekend in Pennsylvania. Bluebirds are territorial, prefer open grassland with scattered trees and are cavity nesters. Bluebirds can typically produce between two and four broods during the spring and summer. We learned after our visit that this pair had laid 4 eggs, their second brood of the year.
