Sialia sialis | ORDER: PASSERIFORMES | FAMILY: TURDIDAE

Unlike the Robins we see Eastern Bluebirds on a fairly regular basis throughout the winter. It does help to have a heated bird bath outside of your front window! We also have many of the wild fruit trees and shrubs with berries that they like to eat such as Cedar, Chokecherry, Pokeweed, Wild Grape, Virginia Creeper and Sumac.
