Wildlife at Langwater Farm: Eastern Bluebird

Langwater Farm, an organic vegetable farm in eastern Massachusetts, has an abundance of wild animals. Last year, a guy named Bob came by. He is devoted to the preservation and expansion of bluebirds, and offered to build and erect bluebird houses on the farm. Sure enough, the bluebirds came, nested, and raised their young.

 

Bluebirds eat lots of cabbage butterfly larvae and even the adults, so organic farmers love them.
