Bluebirds Getting Started

3 posts in this topic

I noticed this warm weekend that we had in the 70s has started some bluebird activity. They are checking out the bluebird boxes in my yard and the neighborhood. I suppose this extremely warm weather has them thinking that we are in April instead of February!

Wow!  Should I put my BB house back out?  I keep it in the garage over winter.  If I wait, I might get chickadees again.  NO bluebirds last year!  I'm in central SC.

My bluebirds didn't make it last year because something kept killing the chicks.  I'm going to put my box on a baffled pole this year to see if that will help.  I think the bluebirds in our region have been known to start building nests as early as April.
