HOSP attacking an egg.

We put up a bluebird house for the 1st time this year and got a pair within a couple days. We've never seen one here before and were surprised they found it so fast!

Just found male kid? Dead on my lawn from brood 1. What could have caused it? 75ft from roadway on my lawn 4ft in from barely used drive not far from the box which has 4 eggs for brood 2 ready to hatch any day now. Don't know how many of the other 4 of 5 from brood 1 made it.

I have a nesting bluebird. The male has not been around for over a week so I assume he is dead. Anyway I have five eggs, one has hatched today. I am in CNY and it is cold and temps are below normal today. I have been feeding the mother the past two weeks with mealworms. I have little hope for the babies with this cool weather and mom having to go hunt for food even though I am putting out mealworms. Is there anyone who could advise me how I can help mom? Thank you

The issue of house sparrows, an invasive species that kills the bluebirds, is one of the most difficult issues to discuss.

I put up my first two bluebird houses ever in my new backyard. I've been doing what I can to attract bluebirds - playing their calls in the morning, offering mealworms etc;

House sparrows have moved in I ordered some traps for them. But today I saw the sparrows going nuts and saw a male eastern bluebird come out of the box. Will they have scared him for good? I know it can take years to attract a bluebird so I'm a bit sad.

Thoughts?
