Far Guy just finished making some Bluebird Houses..we had two last year..this year we are adding six new houses..we spread them through out our property. Last year we had one nesting pair near the house and one nesting pair along the driveway in a tree..so this year that set can have it's own new house if they so desire. They should be here in a week or two..perhaps this year I will be able to witness the fledging young. I read where Bluebirds will come back to the same area they were born in..and since we know that our pair last year raised two sets of young..we wanted to be ready!
The inside of the panel with the hole is roughed up on the inside..so that the little ones can get out of the nest successfully in case the parents don't build a tall nest.
The Bluebirds that visit here are the Eastern Bluebirds. They eat small berries and bugs. Both sets of parents tend to the young together as a team...some people could learn much about parenting from the bluebirds.
