Today I found that I have a pair of Eastern Bluebirds.

What sort of things do they eat?

Where do they build their nests?

Thank you

Here's a good site to get information like that from, and this link is pointed at Eastern Bluebird:

They are cavity nesters - another species that has been hurt by the invasive European Starling.  When available, they eat mostly insects - beetles, crickets, etc.  When not, they switch to fruits and plants.
