Habitat loss, competition from non-native house sparrows, and other pressures spell population decline for Georgia’s Eastern Bluebirds. It’s bad news for birds, but there’s good news, too. People who care enough to re-create favorable conditions in their yards, gardens, and parks can help turn decline into recovery. Join us for a “walk and talk” on the Bluebird trail to find out what you can do to make a difference for bluebirds in your neighborhood.
