A friend asked if I could build him two Bluebird houses, or nesting boxes. I did not know anything about Bluebirds, or their preferences in housing, however the internet has a lot to offer on the subject. I found a simple enough design. Apparently, Bluebirds like rather small, close quarters with a rather small entry door. The plan I found online offered ventilation thru the four bottom corners and two holes near the top of each side. Removing a single screw at the bottom right of the front panel allows the right side panel to swing open for cleaning/removal of old nesting materials. Material is Southern Yellow Pine assembled with butt joints and wood screws. I left the sanding and finishing for the new owner. Hope the Bluebirds like them :-)
