In the past, bluebirds relied upon woodpeckers and other cavity-dwellers to provide the vast majority of their nesting areas. They’d select abandoned cavities in dead trees or fence places that are rotten to elevate their families. The bluebird population decreased radically as development wiped out a number of those natural sites. But boxes have played an essential role in reviving the bluebird. They have requirements, so these DIY birdhouse programs are designed to satisfy their needs.

The North American Bluebird Society, which provided the plans, says parkways with human visitors, cemeteries, golf courses and rural places are good areas to mount those nesting boxes. Only drive a piece of conduit into the ground as shown in right and attach the house 5 ft. Attach and coat the pipe with dirt to deter nest raiders. It’s constructed with the wood’s rough side facing out so that it resembles the birds’ natural sites. And there’s no perch. Notches beneath the entry hole provide footing for bluebirds, but discourage visits and wrens.

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

Best of all, the swing-open side will give you an opportunity to glimpse in to the nestlings for whom you’ve supplied a sturdy and secure home. The side door is very good for monitoring the activity.
