Female Eastern Bluebird brings baby a spider for lunch.
Species: Eastern Bluebird
The best snake protector is the netting used to cover blueberry bushes. Once the snake crawls on that net and tries to escape the more he becomes entangled. I have caught 6 blacksnakes and one copper head this year. Put it where the lawn mover doesn’t hit it or you know what can happen here. I have a long section coming from the woods and no other place where I have birds that a snake will come from. Snakes were killing my chickens, eating my eggs and took out a nest of baby blue birds. It can be a job saving the snake but it beats the alternative.
Hi Fran, from your comment, it seems you are releasing the snakes and we hope that is the case. Snakes and other predators are a natural part of the ecosystem and we would not advocate harming or removing them from their environment.
WOW – this bird has her babies in a secure spot. I wonder where it is?
