#FunFactFriday. A common sight in Georgia this time of year, the Eastern Bluebird is a small thrush with a big round head. Males are bright blue on top and rusty/red on the throat and breast. Females are more subdued, with grayish above and bluish wings and tails. Bluebirds like meadows and openings surrounded by trees and will readily nest in manmade nest boxes. The male brings nest material to the hole, goes in and out, and waves his wings while perched above it. That is pretty much his contribution to nest building; only the female Eastern Bluebird builds the nest and incubates the eggs. Eastern Bluebirds typically have more than one successful brood per year. Young produced in early nests usually leave their parents in summer, but young from later nests frequently stay with their parents over the winter. Photo by Steve Rushing, Georgia Audubon member.

If you can spare 5 or 10 minutes, report your bird observations to eBird online or with our free eBird Mobile app. If you have more time, submit checklists of birds throughout the day. You never know what you might spot. Your observations help us better understand global bird populations.

#FunFactFriday - If you’re looking to spot a Prothonotary Warbler, you’ll need to find the right habitat. A bright yellow bird with beady black eyes and blue-gray wings, these bright warblers are most numerous in the Southeast, where you may find them in swamps and bottomland forests. Some folks even refer to them as “swamp warblers.” Unlike most other warbler species, the Prothonotary Warbler nests in holes in standing dead trees. They may also use nest boxes. According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Prothonotary Warblers were named for the bright yellow robes worn by papal clerks, known as prothonotaries, in the Roman Catholic Church. Populations are in decline due to loss of forested wetlands in the U.S. and mangroves on its wintering grounds. Photo by Michelle Hamner.

👶 Just like a human baby, a young bird's diet is very important. This Chickadee has brought home a caterpillar for it's fledgling but, as a newborn, Chickadees are actually overwhelmingly fed spiders.

🕷️ Although spiders are harder to find and less filling than caterpillars, they contain very high levels of taurine, an amino acid essential in developing visual acuity and overall brain function! And in a study from the University of Glasgow, researchers found that birds who were fed more spiders were bolder and learned more quickly as adults. And it's not just Chickadees! Many species have caught onto this trick and bring their young many spiders in their early days.

Several Audubon members met for a walk along the river walk looking for early migrants. The group spotted very few birds at all. We did hope to identify some of the plant life.

#FunFactFriday. Cedar Waxwings are starting to arrive in Georgia! A stunning bird with a yellow-tipped tail and a black mask, Cedar Waxwings are one of the few North American birds that specialize in eating fruit. They can survive on fruit alone for several months. Brown-headed Cowbirds that are raised in Cedar Waxwing nests typically don’t survive, in part because the cowbird chicks can’t develop on such a high-fruit diet. Because they eat so much fruit, Cedar Waxwings occasionally become intoxicated or even die when they run across overripe berries that have started to ferment and produce alcohol. Nandina berries are also poisonous to Cedar Waxwings when eaten in large quantities so if you have nandina in your yard either get rid of it (can be hard to do) or cut the berries off and dispose of them in the garbage. If you want to attract waxwings to your yard, plant native trees and shrubs that bear small fruits, such as dogwood, serviceberry, cedar, juniper, hawthorn, and winterberry.
