WELCOME to BRAW! 

 

                               People are asking...

 

WHERE ARE OUR BLUEBIRDS?

WHY AREN'T THEY HERE?

HAVE YOU SEEN ANY?

Our webmaster has received numerous Contact Us emails asking similar questions.  Many who maintain a bluebird trail are saying:

  • "This year we did not have any bluebirds in our area."

  • "I built new bird houses, changed their location, and followed BRAW guidance on Starting A Trail - but, NO bluebirds so far."

  • "I can't believe that bluebirds have not returned to our yard this spring."

Well, you are not alone.  While some people have reported seeing or  some bluebirds in our state,  sightings have been few and far between.  

Pat Ready, our Past President and  current Wisconsin Bluebird Newsletter Editor,  explains the impact winter cold snaps can have on nesting birds.

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.
