Bird Tweet of the Week: Eastern Bluebird

The Eastern Bluebird is one of Eastern Canada’s most colourful species of birds. They often appear in folk and fine art. The bluebirds song is a raspy flute like mix of a warble and a whistle, similar to a robins song but with shorter phrases and more chattering. Eastern bluebirds are short distance migrants that return to Canada from the south-east U.S. during late March leaving again by late October.
