Carol,
Thanks for your response, it kind of does appear that the male doesn’t like her furnishings, lol, she doesn’t seem bothered by him removing the material.
I’m sorry to hear about your first nesting attempt, I would be devastated. It is amazing at how much we can worry about nature. This is the first year I put a Nestbox up because last summer we had 10 resident bluebirds. I am completely obsessed with these birds already. For the first two weeks I did not see the fledglings, but over the last week or so I have been seeing them regularly due to them staying close to the pair that are starting a second nest. This morning I was shocked to see 21, yes 21, young bluebirds on the high line near my house accompanied by 3 pair of adult male and females (1 pair being “my” pair). It is just amazing to me that so many are doing so well this spring. Maybe that’s normal, I’ve just never seen that many at a time. Anyway, thanks for listening, I just had to share that with someone who could appreciate it, I’m driving my husband crazy with talking about these bluebirds so much, ;)
