One Million And Counting: Wisconsin Reaches  New Milestone In Avian Citizen Science

MADISON, Wis. – Ranked second nationally in birdwatching participation and a longtime high flyer in bird monitoring, conservation and citizen science, Wisconsin has added another feather to its cap. The state’s bird lovers have submitted more than one million checklists to eBird, the popular online platform for reporting bird observations.

"Only one state with a smaller population - Oregon - has reached this feat".

Learn

In 1964 there were only an estimated 600 nesting bluebird pairs left in the state due to habitat loss.

Help

Each year BRAW members’ nest boxes alone fledge over 20,000 bluebirds, plus numerous tree swallows, chickadees and other birds.

Maintain

BRAW members maintain 8,000 nest boxes throughout the state bring a wealth of experience to those wanting to learn how to do it.

All About Bluebirds For Kids

I  am not the only one who has been asked these questions. So, I opted to post this Children's Bluebird Activity Book as a handy resource of bluebird information for  parents, grandparents, and teachers of kids expressing an interest in bluebirds.

Kids are naturally curious about wildlife, especially the birds they see when outdoors.  Brightly colored birds draw special attention because of their beautiful plumage.

 

Recently, my grandson found out that I serve as BRAW's webmaster and began to show interest by asking me lots of questions about bluebirds.  Where do they come from? How long do they live? Where can I find them? What do they eat?  Why? Why? Why... You get the picture by now.
