    I did not get my bluebird houses cleaned out last fall and now I am afraid to try to clean them out this late.  I also haven’t seen any bluebird activity around them this spring.  Will they come back to use a nesting box that hasn’t had last years nest removed?  I sure hope so!

    I hate to be the one to tell you this, but bluebirds won’t use a nest box that hasn’t been cleaned. But it isn’t to late! I would recommend cleaning your bluebird houses ASAP, and perhaps one will still move in this year. Good luck!

    They are still here!  There are three houses they have nested in and I didn’t get two of the three cleaned out this year.  I got the two cleaned out yesterday and saw them in the 3rd house.  I am so happy!  I saw some sparrows around one of the ones I cleaned out yesterday and looks as if they are building a nest in there.  Will have to watch it and clean it out b4 they lay eggs.  :-(   Thank you for ur answer.  U can bet they will be cleaned out this fall!
