Mountain Bluebirds are one of the most striking birds of the summer in the interior of British Columbia. This hardy little thrush is found in dryer areas where there is a good perch with an open view of the area. Mountain Bluebirds migrate as far north as Alaska in the summer. Bluebirds have been pushed out by European starlings and House Sparrows in the past 40 years and were on the decline. There are now bluebird trails that allow for suitable nesting sites with out the competition.
