Bluebird Monitoring

Did you know M-NCPPC staff and volunteers monitor the Eastern Bluebird on bluebird trails during the breeding season? They are monitored on a weekly basis to observe nest attempts, eggs, hatchlings, nestlings, and fledglings in each box. Although the nesting boxes are constructed for bluebirds, other species utilize the boxes as well. 

The Eastern Bluebird program has been an important and successful endeavor for the birds in Prince George's County. The amount of cumulative fledglings has increased each year since 2005 and will continue to grow thanks to the efforts of our dedicated volunteers and staff.
