The bluebird is known for his brilliant blue color on back, wings, and tail, and rich brown on his breast. The eastern bluebird is a summer resident throughout Pennsylvania. Bluebirds are usually found in fields, open woodlands, parks or along golf courses or other open areas, including suburban locations with open spaces and scattered tress. The eastern bluebird has a musical flight call that often reveals its presence.
