I was intrigued by the design for a bluebird house and asked my father to get us an inch-and-a-half auger bit so I could build one. To my great disappointment, my father said that it was no use to build a bluebird house because it would only be taken over by house sparrows, and we did not want to provide nest sites for those pests. He told me that when he was a boy, he and his neighbors had bluebird houses right in the front yard. Bluebirds would even nest on the porch if a suitable cavity were available.

When a pair of bluebirds discovers a box, the male goes in and out repeatedly, fluttering his wings as if to tell his mate that he has found a suitable site. Both birds then thoroughly inspect their prospective new home, after which they may remain in the vicinity or they may disappear for a few weeks. If the box is checked, it is likely to be empty or likely to contain a tiny trace of nesting material: one or two fragments of dried grass about the size of a thread and usually not more than about three inches long.
