Learn more about the eastern bluebird box
You might see birdhouses all over the park. They are for eastern bluebirds, a type of native songbird. Bluebirds like to nest in tree holes or woodpecker holes, but there is a lot of competition for these limited spaces. A well-placed birdhouse can help more bluebirds find a place to raise their families.
