This is the first year we have had bluebirds as year-round residents. Eastern Bluebirds are very helpful on the farm as they are predominantly bug eaters, but they do also eat fruits. We do not set out bird feeders, but we deliberately plant and cultivate fruiting trees and plants. The bluebirds are currently enjoying the fruits of the winged sumac and multi-flora roses that we grow in our hedgerows. This chap was taking a breather in the wild cherry tree by our front door (I took the picture from my desk).
