The Maryland Bluebird Society (MBS) assists in monitoring and increasing the population of the Eastern Bluebird and other cavity nesting birds by educating and informing our members and the public about Bluebirds.  Below are a few short videos with sound and a sound clip.  Please click on the links below to activate.

We also have a live video Bluebird website maintained by MBS member John Wachter at this link.  This is a dual live video feed, 24/7, 365 days a year!  When the Bluebirds are not active in the nesting box, we show live video of John's bird feeders.  The nestbox is illuminated with infrared lights to allow viewing the nest at night.  If the webcam is not up and running, please refresh your screen and/or try again in a few moments.  John can be reached here.
