I had house sparrows take over all my nest boxes, despite my ruthless clearing efforts. This year I only have 1 seed feeder (front yard), the nest boxes have been moved to edge of woods out back. I did put up a meal worm feeder near them. Wish me luck

We have an active Eastern Bluebird nest on video – to share with you.
On Easter day she laid her 3rd egg – and we will be pulling for her to lay a couple more.

Our heartfelt thanks to John Trombly for making this possible.

Seems like no matter how far apart I place the second box, bluebirds with a complete nest in one are trying to keep tree swallows out of the second. Is there a specific distance for placement?

I have 2 seed feeders near the house which attract a wide variety of birds, including house sparrows. 🙁 I moved all BB nest boxes away from the house hoping to lesson competition between the sparrow and BB. Anyone have thoughts on how to enjoy both seed eaters and the BBs?
