Want to attract blue birds to your home?

       Ellen Blackwell will be hosting a virtual meeting tomorrow Thursday, February 25 at 7 PM on how to help Howard County’s bluebird population.
     Here is the information she sent me:

     "Last year, the state reported a more than 60 percent decrease in bluebird nesting activity. Bluebirds can thrive in rural, suburban, and urban areas of our community. Males start scouting for boxes in March (I have a pair that has already claimed a box) so now is the time. Providing a home for bluebirds assists a species that needs our assistance. If you put some time, effort, and minor expense into putting up a bluebird box and monitoring it properly - you and the bluebirds will experience mutual happiness and satisfaction for many years. Bluebirds beautify and delight others in our community. Please send an e-mail to and I will provide you with the PowerPoint and other materials and resources. If you cannot call in, I am happy to furnish and answer questions about the materials. The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session. I hope you will tune in and soon be enjoying the joy of bluebirds! Thursday, February 25 at 7 o’clock PM. Call (877) 267-1577, enter code 995 565 981, then immediately press the # sign."
