These beautiful photos of our three eastern bluebirds were taken by our supervisor Rachel. All three birds have wing injuries and are currently waiting to be placed in a zoo aviary. These gorgeous bluebirds are thriving, can climb trees, and are eating crickets and mealworms wonderfully. If they didn’t have a good quality of life or couldn’t handle themselves, we would not want that kind of life for them. They all have irreversible wing injuries but get around great with partial flight to land. Thankfully, many accredited zoos have aviaries with bluebird breeding programs to help the population, and we are hoping we can place them in a zoo aviary soon!
