Welcome to the Ohio Bluebird Society!
We are your direct connection for bluebird conservation including news, recent developments and membership information.
The Ohio Bluebird Society provides information and encouragement for those wishing to engage in the conservation of bluebirds and other native cavity nesting species.
Ohio Bluebird Society, Inc. (OBS) was formed in 1987 for the purpose of supporting the return and the perpetuation of the Eastern Bluebird (Sialia sialis) and other native cavity nesting birds in Ohio. To this end, OBS will strive for the best methods to use, conserve and create habitat for the protection of such species.
