Answer
Hi Bob. This is not unusual as they have many predators. Also it is the reason why we recommend that you have 3 0r 4 boxes (At least 100 yards apert - contact me about it if you don't have room) so you will not be out of the Bluebird business if there is an attack. This is probably either from the killer house sparrows or House Wrens). Have you seen either? If you will send your mailing address to me at walshaw1@cox.net I will send you my free Bluebird book that will make you an expert. Good luck. Bluebird Bob Walshaw.
