This flyer contains general information on Bluebirds – how to attract them and the best ways of helping them. There are also sample letters that can be distributed with the flyer. These publications were prepared by a group of members of the Nature.net Bluebirding Forum. We hope they will be distributed in person, or by mail, to increase Bluebird awareness in our neighborhoods.
The authors and preparers of the flyer wished to make it freely available to anyone with an interest in Bluebirds. To this end, it has been converted into a pdf file, which is the most universally available file format, requiring only the free Adobe Acrobat Reader. The file may be downloaded at the link below. This flyer may be printed using any color inkjet printer, or it can be taken to a printing facility that is equipped to print pdf files.
While the flyer is free to download, print, and distribute as you see fit, the authors retain control of its content. The flyer may not be altered or amended without the authors' consent. BluebirdNut.com and the flyer's authors encourage persons distributing this flyer to do so in a responsible manner, in accordance with any local requirements (e.g., it should not be placed in a mailbox without going through the postal system), and take no responsibility for the failure of any distributor to do so.

The "Bluebird Nut" Mealworm Feeder is one of our most popular items at TMB Studios. We started with a suet feeder made by Erva Tools in Chicago, adapted the design to feeding mealworms, and for over a year we hand-crafted these feeders ourselves - until Erva saw that the design was gaining such popularity that they agreed to make the feeder for us. It is available in our online store for the lowest price available anywhere online!
