In the past, bluebirds relied upon woodpeckers and other cavity-dwellers to extend the majority of their nesting areas. They would select cavities in fence places that are rotten or trees that are dead to raise their families. The population declined dramatically as growth wiped out many of these natural nesting sites. But boxes have played a role in reviving the bluebird that was beloved. They have requirements, so these DIY birdhouse programs are designed to meet their needs.

The North American Bluebird Society, that provided the programs, says cemeteries rural areas, golf courses and parkways with minimal human traffic are great places to mount these boxes. Drive a 3/4-inch piece of conduit as shown at right, and attach the house 5 ft above the ground with conduit straps. Attach a predator shield and coating the pipe with dirt to discourage nest raiders.
This bluebird box has a couple of interesting features worth pointing out. It’s assembled with the wood’s side facing out so that it resembles the birds’ natural sites. And there’s no perch. Notches beneath the entrance hole supply footing for bluebirds, but discourage visits from house sparrows and wrens.

The swing-open side is suitable, too. You can check for nests of undesirable birds (since house sparrows and European starlings are not protected by law, just remove their houses) and also have easy access for cleaning out the bluebird’s nesting substances after the young have fledged. You will want to do this since bluebirds often raise as many as three broods in one season.

Best of all, the swing-open side will provide you a chance to glimpse in to the nestlings for whom you’ve provided a sturdy and safe home. The side door is great for tracking the action.
