Reintroduction of the Western Bluebird, a short-distance migrant,
to the Pacific Northwest
Executive Director of Ecostudies
The Western Bluebird (Sialia mexicana) was a common inhabitant in oak-prairie and other open habitats in western Washington and southwestern British Columbia until the early-1900’s when habitat loss and fragmentation and competition for nest cavities from exotic species triggered a wave of extirpations across the region. Since 2007, Ecostudies Institute and other conservation partners have been working to restore populations in the U.S (San Juan Island) and Canada (Vancouver Island). Join us as Gary Slater talks about the first successful reintroduction of a migratory passerine species, the progress and setbacks to this conservation program, and the important role that private landowners play in the recovery of this iconic species.
