Bluebirds/No bluebirds


I have had my BB house up for 2 years.  I haven't had a single BB yet.  It is placed on my privacy fence, under the outer edge of a large oak tree.  Do you have any suggestions?  Thank you, PatI

Yes, Pat, glad to help. Bluebirds like open areas, generally away from trees. Also they seem to know that cats, raccoons, snakes and other predators can climb wooden fences and posts. If you will send your mailing address to me at I will send you my free bluebird book that will make you an expert. More than 3300 are out across the U.S., Canada and Bermuda. Bluebird Bob Walshaw.
