After a bluebird egg hatches, it takes 16 days for the hatchling to grow into an immature bluebird.  Attracting bluebirds to a nest box in your yard or to one on a trail is a most rewarding experience.

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.
