In 2012 the Virginia Bluebird Society generously donated nine new houses allowing the Bryan Park bluebird trail to be expanded.

Volunteers, with a specialized knowledge of and a love for bluebirds,  installed the houses.  Each is equipped with guards to help protect the nests from natural predators, such as snakes and other birds.

Volunteers will continue to monitor the trail, which was begun several years ago.  It has been wonderfully successful as a hardy population of bluebirds now make the park their home.

You can read all about this project at two of the park’s display areas, the Azalea Garden bulletin board and in the kiosk near the woods, close to the soccer fields.  The next time you visit the park keep an eye out for flashes of blue. You are sure to see them!
