Subject: Bluebird pair visiting nestbox
A male bluebird began checking out the box in my yard on 10/31. A female
arrived on 11/01. They visit each morning, pair bonding in and out of the
box.

I watched the fall flock near my home starting 9/17. Pairs began checking
the box in March this year. 3 pairs (different females) nested/fledged thru
late July.

Everything I can find on Bluebird nesting, says it ends in August.

Is this bonding behavior common in late Fall/November?

Thank you,
