We’ve got Bluebirds! A pair of Western Bluebirds have been hanging out at one of our two nest boxes on the LMU Campus. They look so lovely on the lawn by the Sacred Heart Chapel, or on the bench near the Jacaranda trees–clearly they think they own the place! We hopefully will be expecting babies soon, so stay tuned! Remember, Bluebirds bring good luck, and we are oh-so-lucky to have them dazzle us with their beauty and song.
We hope you enjoy these beautiful shots of the bluebirds seen on our very own campus, accompanied by some interesting facts about what make them so special. Thanks to the Sydney Stern Memorial Trust for funding the project for making the bluebird boxes, and to Ian Kimbrey for making them and installing them on Campus last July!
Western bluebirds are common, but they still need help to keep their population strong and mighty. We encourage you to reach out to CURes to learn more about what we can all do to help these friends live long and happy lives!
