This is a nesting box intended for Eastern Bluebirds.

There is no mistaking an adult male with their striking royal blue back with bright orange throat and breast, and bright white belly. Females tend to be paler overall, grayish with orange on breast and sides of neck, and white belly.

They like fields and open woods. They nest in tree cavities or nesting boxes. You can see them perched on fence posts, and edges of trees.

Little Known Facts: These nesting boxes have been maintained by the volunteers of the Halton Bluebird Club since 1989. There are currently 72 bluebird homes in the park. Bluebirds suffered a major decline from the 1920s to the 1970s. The club's goal is to increase bluebird numbers in the areathrough monitoring nesting success. If you or someone you know is interested in building and maintaining birdhouses or getting involved with monitoring, please reach out to park staff.

If you see a bluebird it symbolizes hope, love, and renewal. If you dream of bluebirds it represents happiness, joy, fulfillment, hope, prosperity, and good luck.
