What was inside the box was a male bird = dead - and all the hatchlings were dead. I have photo. The female was busy feeding until recently. There is no sign of disturbance of the nest, no feathers strewn around, nothing violent occurred, The male is fully intact. I have a photo. Please, any ideas what could have happened to this family of Bluebirds?Disease?? What???Thanks for any response.
