Bluebirds In Berkeley

Berkeleyside,  Berkeley, CA’s independent news site reported on Western Bluebirds nesting in Berkeley. The article features Rusty Scalf, a local Golden Gate Audubon teacher and trip  leader. He has taught or led a number of classes and field trips I have been on the last two years that have contributed to my ever-increasing knowledge of birds. Rusty has also been putting up bird boxes for bluebirds in Berkeley and monitored their nesting behavior. Although Western Bluebirds are more often seen in parks and rural settings they have responded well to urban bird boxes. Western Bluebirds are unusual in that first year and adult birds may help older birds care for nestlings.
