A word of caution for placing your Bluebird nestbox. It is important WHERE you place it.
-- at least 100 feet from any structure, or it becomes House Sparrow habitat.
-- not on a fenceline near brush or trees; Wren habitat.
-- not under a leafy tree - more wrens
-- place on a post or pole 4-8 feet off the ground, in a pasture or field; preferably facing south or east.

Yes, you read that right, Bluebird. Singular. But I'm pretty excited because it's the first one I've ever seen at our house. So I am off to the garage to see if I can find the old bluebird house. Hope springs eternal .
