Blue Birds of Stratford Hall

  • Stratford Hall 483 Great House Road Montross, VA, 22520 United States (map)

Join us Saturday, January 26, 2019, for a lecture, workshop, and guided hike hosted by the Fredericksburg chapter of the Virginia Blue Bird Society. 

During this event participants will learn about the important role blue birds play in our ecosystem, how to construct their own bluebird house for their property, and hike along Stratford's property to  view the bluebird houses that the Virginia Blue Bird Society maintain at Stratford Hall.

Bluebirds have a large historical and cultural significance in the Eastern United States. They continue to play an important role in protecting crops from insects, ensuring a reliable food source for people. Farmers plant bluebird boxes around agricultural fields to feed on insects that can otherwise destroy crops.
