Eastern Bluebird        Sialia sialis

Eastern Bluebirds breed from southern Canada through the eastern two-thirds of the United States and south to Central America and Bermuda.  They winter throughout their breeding range from the northern United States to Mexico and Cuba.

The Eastern Bluebird is a common breeding species throughout northern Florida and in suburban and rural areas throughout the central peninsula.  In southern Florida, it is found in the Big Cypress swamp south to extreme northern Monroe and Dade counties.  It is largely absent from areas south and east of Lake Okeechobee.
