Sparrow-Resistant House w/Free Book 5-3/4" x 8" x 10" high
Bluebirds Love it!
I was just amazed with this birdhouse. I had not seen a bluebird at all this year until I put up my new bluebird house. Low and behold it wasn't more than two days when I saw a male and female bluebird checking out the house. Sure enough they began building their nest. I now have 5 eggs in the nest waiting to hatch. Can't wait....The house sparrow took over one of my bluebird houses, so that is why I decided to give the sparrow-resistant house a try and as you can see from the photo, taken on 6-8-14 that is works. Thanks Dr. Foster and Smith...

No English sparrows!
Put up this bluebird box, and despite terrible problems w/English sparrows for quite a few years, including this spring, got a couple of bluebirds immediately, with no English sparrows in sight. The quality of the box is excellent. One problem...the door is really tight, and can't get it open to monitor. I soaped the edges, but didn't help. I am wondering if when the box weathers, the wood will shrink, but box has only been up a couple of weeks. If this works out as well as it has so far, I am going to recommend this box to everybody! I had given up on bluebirds altogether. AND the price was great.

I was excited to purchase a blue bird box as I had been seeing bluebirds at my new home and wanted to persuade them to stick around. I recieved the box in the estimated shipping time, it was packed nicely and the book was very informative. The box was easy to assemble(pre-made), we just mounted it to a pole. We had the box up on a Sunday afternoon and we had nesting bluebirds by Thursday! They loved it right away, I caught sneek peeks at the female digging through old straw/grass and flying the material into the box. She was comical to watch sqeeze through the slotted opening. They must have been sucessful because I now see daddy fly by with a mouth fulls of yummy bugs which he flys into the opening. I was extremly impressed with this box, and the fact the birds adjusted to it so fast(I was skeptical of the 'new wood' look and thought it would deter potential residents...but they seemed to like it) Definately recommend and will be purchasing a few more.

Birdhouse looks great!
The bluebird house looks great. I have put out mealworms near houses. So far, no bluebirds. Not a problem with the house, just don't think I'm in a good area.
