My yard is not that big, how many boxes can I put up?

Boxes can be installed in pairs about 18 to 20 feet apart or one by itself. These pairs or boxes should then be about 100 yards apart. Bluebirds are territorial so two different couples will not use boxes placed too close together.

Where is the best location to place my box?

In open grass lands away from woods/brush, houses, barns, tool-sheds and where there is short (chemical free) grass. A clean source of water is also necessary.

Do Bluebirds go south for the winter?

They go to where they can find food and shelter. This may be toward areas where there is warmer weather, or it could be the same place as their summer home.

What do Bluebirds eat?

Bluebirds eat insects when available and fruits and berries during colder months.

What size entrance hole should I have for my nestbox?

1-1/2 inches.
