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?

The bluebird was my mother’s favorite bird and when we lost her to cancer it became and emblem of hope for my family through our grief. I recently released a book about processing loss entitled Rise Up, Little Bluebirds and I’d love to share it with anyone who could resonate with it. We’re a little less alone when we help each other through.
