bluebird photo

Hello Stephanie. The bluebird photo was taken in February 2012 at our property along the Mississippi River near Balltown, Iowa. The bluebirds stay year-round. We had 12 at our feeders on December 28. I started putting out live and dry mealworms about three years ago when I first became interested in feeding bluebirds. I have found that many other species eat the mealworms. I think the bluebirds stay because we have much milder winters than in the past and not because of the food. Our Dubuque Audubon Society posted a picture from a member of a bluebird in winter a couple years ago photographed at another location. Also, if you look at Project Feeder Watch maps you will see bluebirds are found during winter in our region. We also have had yellow-rumped warbler at our winter feeders for the past two winters. The YRW is clearly not suppose to be here! Thank you for your interest. M

Eastern Bluebirds by Mari Wolter

Can you tell me where and when this photo was taken? Place and date?
I'm interested in Bluebirds and migration. Do the Bluebirds in this photo live year round where this photo was taken or were they caught off guard in an early snow storm before they were about to migrate.
I am involved with Audubon and Bluebird Nestbox projects to restore Bluebirds to our area,
Thanks.
Stephanie
