The eastern bluebird is a summer resident of Minnesota, and the 115 acres belonging to the Loghouse and Homestead on Spirit Lake, MN is a favorite nesting spot for a number of Bluebird families. One or two broods are often produced in each nest found on the rambling property.

The bluebird is well named, for he wears a coat of the purest, richest, and most gorgeous blue on back, wings, and tail; no North American bird better deserves the name, for no other flashes before our admiring eyes so much brilliant blue. It has been said that he carries on his back the blue of heaven and the rich brown of the freshly turned earth on his breast; but who has ever seen the bluest sky as blue as the bluebird’s back?” (Quote describing the eastern bluebird from the Arthur Cleveland Bent series on the Birds of North America.)
