Product Description


Silliness can be charming. Such is the case with Joan Rattner Heilman's Bluebird Rescue: A Harrowsmith Country Life Nature Guide . This slim little volume asks that we join what it calls the "Bluebird Rescue Team," and offers precise instructions about how to build bluebird boxes, where to put them, and how to protect these beautiful but vulnerable little birds from their enemies. The book is filled with brilliant photographs of bluebirds, the illustrations are handsome and practical, and the author's prose is clear and chirpy. What she's saying, without clubbing us over the head with it, is that bluebirds are the coal-mine canaries of the 1990s, more so than most bird species. If they go, we won't be far behind. She has me convinced.

By bluebird on Feb. 27 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is full of information suitable for all ages, children included. The one aspect that is insufficient is the information about cleaning the nests after birds have flown, and about checking the nests regularly: INformation omitted is that the birds take several days to over a week to lay the clutch and they do not sit on the eggs at that time. The nest looks abandoned but is not. So don't clear it out until at least 2 weeks have passed with no action. The book made it sound like you should be prompt but this is detrimental to the birds. check out the bluebird society of ontario as well.
