Loretta Rodriguez, Jessica Kochert, Joy Jordan, Christina Packard, and Mark Hostetler 2

This 4-H Bluebird Youth Project (4H WLM 20) is designed to help youth become careful and knowledgeable observers of bluebirds and other cavity-nesting birds in your area. Youth will learn to create a habitat that promotes the health and safety of local cavity-nesting birds. Finally, the project guides youth to explore and learn about bluebird monitoring and data collecting programs of researchers as well ascareers.

The accompanying Leader's Guide (4H WLL 30) supports this project and provides additional information and answer keys to youth activities.
