Western & Mountain Bluebirds

While the information on this website focuses mainly on the Eastern Bluebird (Sialia sialis) or EABL, there are two other species:  Western (S. mexicana) or WEBL, and Mountain (MOBL) (S. currucoides).

Some of our readers have provided photos and information on these species for us to include on this website, and we wish to thank them for their contributions. If you have information or additional photos of Mountain Bluebirds or Western Bluebirds that you’d like to share with us, please visit our Bluebird Nut Cafe Discussion Forum. We may post some of your photos and info here.
