An adult Western Bluebird feeds its two young,
shortly before the birds fledged. The birds nested in
one of the many bird houses that have been erected
at the Rodman Preserve.
Bluebird boxes put to good use
Numerous bird houses have been erected at the Lake County Land
Trustís Rodman Preserve. The houses have proven to be a
big attraction to the many Western Bluebirds that inhabit the
area, as well as Tree Swallows and some flycatchers.
Board member, and nature photographer, Brad Barnwell, was able
to photograph the adult bluebirds feeding the babies, not long
before the baby bluebirds actually fledged, or left the box.
