This bluebird trail has been quite a work in progress, starting in 2006 when I arrived in my new home in Southwest Virginia. As I develop this page, I will explain some short history, experiences, and photos as I learned along the way and how I changed my strategies for monitoring the boxes and how the actual nesting boxes themselves and all equipment and installations changed and improved. As I find time to develop this, I will add here. I hope you find this enjoyable. Everyone is new at this bluebirding thing — we quickly learn how joyful it is and how quickly we become “hooked” to helping them. The photos above represent the first couple and existing weather bluebird box on the property (my first bluebird couple), seeing hungry nestlings for the first time, and then the creation of my first nesting boxes.
This graphic below shows nesting succession from 2008 to 2015. This graphic will be updated and posted here as a fast glance on how the nestings performed from year to year:
