Bluebird Hatchlings


In a previous post, Beth Bartoli, Naturalist at Newport State Park, checked on a couple of bluebird boxes as part of her Eastern Bluebird monitoring program. Today, we take another look inside box 3.14 to find out how things are coming along!

Beth began filming these short videos during the COVID-19 public health emergency. Like all state parks at the time, Newport was mostly closed and the public was encouraged to shelter at home. She wanted to share what was going on in the park with anyone who couldn’t be there, especially since the naturalist programs and hikes were cancelled.
