The state bird of Missouri is associated with cheerfulness; in fact, many say its song sounds like “Cheer cheerful charmer.” You will be glad to see its blue upperparts and rusty and white underparts.
Instructions and illustrations show you how to build a bluebird house from a single 1-by-6-inch, 5-foot-long board.
