Bluebirds are all along the roadsides this morning--a windless, warm, October day. They are gathered socially in companies of half a dozen or more and keep near together like a big family, one bird following another when it flies. They are quietly musical as they flit about, giving the gentle whit call, the softer chatter, the velvety turwy , and sometimes a phrase of song. (Quote by - A.C. Bent )

If you don't like someone's idea of a nestbox or want to challenge what they are reporting as working for them then build another 50 or 100 nestboxes and do your own controlled experiment. The bluebirds and other cavity nesters can only benefit from more widespread experimentation and observations. (Quote by - Keith Kridler)

That bluebirds currently nest in all of Pennsylvania's 67 counties is directly related to the interest Pennsylvanians have shown toward bluebird conservation and doing something more for wildlife in their yards over the past 50 years. But we should not consider the bluebird's comeback a done deal, because their existence seems destined to hinge on the continued involvement of people who care about the species. If people stop putting out nest boxes for bluebirds, there undoubtedly will be serious repercussions. (Quote by - Dan Brauning)

Blue skies Smiling at me Nothing but blue skies Do I see Bluebirds Singing a song Nothing but bluebirds All day long(Quote by - Irving Berlin)

We can, and should, try new things, but incorporate some of the knowledge we have already, so we don't make things worse. (Quote by - Kate Arnold)

The bluebird is well named, for he wears a coat of the purest, richest, and most gorgeous blue on back, wings, and tail; no North American bird better deserves the name, for no other flashes before our admiring eyes so much brilliant blue. (Quote by - Arthur C. Bent)

As might be expected of creatures so heavenly in color, the disposition of bluebirds is particularly angelic. Gentleness and amiability are expressed in their soft musical voice. Tru-al-ly, tru-al-ly, they sweetly assert when we can scarcely believe that spring is here; tru-wee, tur-wee they softly call in autumn when they go roaming through the countryside in flocks of azure. (Quote by - Neltje Blanchan)

When you see a bluebird, it just takes your breath away. (Quote by - Barbara Clark of Bickleton)

The lake lay blue beneath the hill. O'er it, as I looked, there flew across the waters, cold and Still, a bird whose wings were palest blue. The sky above was blue at last, the sky beneath me blue in blue. A moment ere the bird had passed, it caught the image as he flew. (Quote by - C.V. Stanford)

The Bluebird is a Cut Above all others. He seeks nothing in return for his superior being. For his unique color and personality he ask not for special favors. He appreciates your admiration and thanks you for your help. The fact, that in his world, you cared for him is the only fact that mattered. (Quote by - Wendell Long)
