While birdhouses come in all shapes, sizes and varieties, this bluebird nesting box is designed to attract, well, bluebirds. These gorgeously colored birds tend to start nesting in the first half of March, generally laying 3-6 eggs that will incubate for about 2 weeks. Young bluebirds will often begin flying around 16 days after hatching.
The nesting box, while made for attracting bluebirds, can house other species of bird (such as wrens, chickadees and even flying squirrels) and will sometimes attract other animals and pests. Be they raccoons, snakes, wasps or cats, you can get them away from your bird house with the tips found in this guide.
This concise, 2 page building manual includes instructions and detailed diagrams for building the bluebird nesting box, as well as tips and tricks for using it effectively. If you've ever wanted to build one for yourself and learn what to expect with having one in your yard, this guide is a must-have!
