ABBREVIATION : SISI COMMON NAMES : eastern bluebird TAXONOMY : The currently accepted scientific name for eastern bluebird is Sialia sialis (Linnaeus) [3,59]. It is a member of the family Muscicapidae [59]. Subspecies recognized in the American Ornithologist's Union 1957 checklist (the last edition including subspecies) include [2]: S. s. sialis Linnnaeus, eastern bluebird S. s. grata Bangs, Florida bluebird S. s. episcopus Oberholser, Tamaulipas bluebird S. s. fulva Brewster, azure bluebird Eastern bluebird interbreed with mountain bluebird (S. currucoides) [46]. ORDER : Passeriformes CLASS : Bird FEDERAL LEGAL STATUS : No special status OTHER STATUS : Atwood [4] compiled state status lists of western landbirds; eastern bluebird was listed as of special concern in Montana and a "watch" species in North Dakota. Eastern bluebird was on the Audubon Society's Blue List (1986) in 1972, from 1978 to 1982, and of Special Concern in 1986 [74]. In a 1979 compilation of state lists eastern bluebird was listed as rare and/or endangered in Connecticut (1976), existing in limited numbers in Massachussetts, and uncommon and declining in New Hampshire [75]. It was listed in the South Dakota Natural Heritage Database as a species monitored by the South Dakota Department of Game, Fish, and Parks; apparently secure in the breeding season in South Dakota, though rare statewide and with cause for long-term concern. It was rated globally secure though rare in parts of its range [76]. In Canada, the eastern bluebird is listed as vulnerable in Manitoba, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec, and Saskatchewan [77].
