They’re looking at the box in the front yard although I now have the male looking at the old box as well. About 9 years ago we had a pair of HOSPs drive out our EABLs and that’s when I had Mr. Van Ert was kind enough to overnight me a trap on goodwill before I paid him. Once we were rid of those pests, the EABLs came back to the box and tidied up the pig sty left by the sparrows. I’ve heard of people microwaving nests after the fledglings go and place it back into the box to promote a second brood (I love EABLs but not sure I’m putting a bird’s nest into my microwave :).
