“The eastern bluebird (Sialia sialis) is a small bird found in open woodlands, farmlands, and orchards. This species measures 16–21 cm long, spans 25–32 cm across the wings, and weighs 0.95–1.20 oz. They are very social birds and gather in flocks of a hundred or more. However, they are territorial during the breeding season and may continue to defend a feeding area throughout the winter. Mating occurs in the spring and summer. A mature female typically raises two broods each season. Nests are constructed in trees within abandoned woodpecker holes or other cavities that provide adequate protection (usually several feet above ground). Construction of the nest is done primarily by the female and takes around 10 days to complete. These nests are small, cup-like structures lined with grass, feathers, stems, and hairs. Each female lays three to seven light-blue or, rarely, white eggs.”~www.wikipedia.org
