In earlier times bluebirds relied upon woodpeckers and other cavity-dwellers to provide the majority of their nesting areas. They would pick cavities in dead trees or rotten fence posts to raise their families. The bluebird population declined dramatically, as development wiped out a number of those nesting sites. But man-made nesting boxes have played a vital role in reviving the treasured bluebird. They have prerequisites, therefore these DIY birdhouse plans are made to meet their demands.

Says rural areas, cemeteries, golf courses and parkways with human traffic are great areas to mount those nesting boxes. Drive a piece of conduit as shown at right and attach the home 5 ft. Attach a predator shield and coat the pipe with dirt to deter nest raiders. It is assembled with this wood’s side facing out so that it more closely resembles the birds’ natural nesting sites. And there is 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, also. You can check for nests of undesirable birds (since house sparrows and European starlings aren’t protected by legislation, simply remove their nests) and have easy access for cleaning out the bluebird’s nesting materials after the young have fledged. You will want to do this quickly, because bluebirds increase as many as three broods in one season.

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