We apologize that there has been a serious error in the mailing of the Spring Journal. Our database information is correct, however the mailing list file was corrupted somewhere along the way. Every member address will get their Bluebird, but it will have the incorrect name and ID# on the label. If you have any question about the status of your membership or wish to check on when your dues expire please email Sherry at or Marion at and we will answer you as quickly as possible.

Important Note: NABS phone number has changed, the new number is 812-200-5700.  Other numbers listed in older material (i.e. Bluebird) are no longer in use.

Our Mission

The North American Bluebird Society is a non-profit education, conservation and research organization that promotes the recovery of bluebirds and other native cavity-nesting bird species in North America.

              About NABS

NABS was founded in 1978 by Dr. Lawrence Zeleny to promote the preservation of bluebirds, a species in decline.  Larry, with the support of his wife, Olive dedicated much of his life to providing nestboxes and managing trails.  He promoted bluebirds through hundreds of talks and articles in many periodicals.

NABS' core mission: education, conservation and research mirror the life of Dr. Zeleny.  His book, The Bluebird: How You Can Help Its Fight for Survival is a testament to what he called, the "symbol of love, hope and happiness," the bluebird.
