BACKYARD BLUE BIRDS !!!

June 12, 2019

For  5 glorious  days I had an eastern  bluebird pair  perching  about  my backyard and checking out my bluebird house.  I understand it is not always easy picking out a new home  and in the end, to my great disappointment,  they  moved on.    These  bluebirds  were the first  in my yard since I moved into this house  6 years ago so it was quite a treat.

In the past my bluebird house has always had Eurasian Sparrows as  residents,  and although the  sparrows  still come to my feeders, they did not move back into the house.  That along with  the bluebird rejection, I am  looking  into an upgrade.   While looking online, I have noticed many manufactures do not go by the specified house size and hole size that works best for attracting  certain birds.  So if you are trying to attract a certain bird, make sure you are investing in the correct size for the bird residents that you want.  It also always nice if you can easily open the box  to clean it out before  each  spring and your  new home hunters.
