A mere 50 years ago, Eastern Bluebirds suffered a steep decline in population, enough so that scientists feared for their survival. This decline was due in part to severe weather, but also to human activities. Habitat loss, removal of dead trees, the introduction of invasive species, pesticide use, cars, hunting, and collection of eggs all contributed to this decline. Fortunately citizen scientists reversed the trend by introducing artificial housing in the form of nest boxes. Now there is a large network of bluebird trails around the country, monitored weekly from spring through late summer. The bluebird population
has rebounded and stabilized.
With the purchase of this t-shirt (or two or three!), you can be a part of the effort to conserve bluebirds for many years to
come. Proceeds will be donated to organizations that help support Eastern Bluebird habitat. Wouldn't it be a great gift for all the bird lovers in your life?
