Want to attract the beloved bluebird to your yard? Start by offering them nesting boxes or birdhouses. Because these colorful birds are attracted to open spaces, place the bluebird boxes away from trees in your yard. You can also attract insect-loving bluebirds by offering them tasty treats. Try placing meal-worms or fruit in a platform bird feeder. Bluebirds also like to perch and eat berries from fruiting trees. So, you can attract bluebirds to your yard with berry-producing shrubs. Like other birds, bluebirds are attracted to fresh, clean water for drinking and bathing. So, offer fresh water from a birdbath.
