    4 years ago I made a nesting platform for Robins.  They didn’t use that first year, probably didn’t get it up in time.  The second year they used it.  But since then they haven’t.  Any ideas why not??

    Have you checked the top (inside)of the box to see if WASP have built them a nest in the top….sometimes this stops birds from using a box….

    I checked the nesting platform and there is no wasp nest and no sign one has ever been there.  I’m at a loss why they aren’t using it.

    Does it face the South or south east? They prefer that direction if they are up under the eaves and are somewhat protected, otherwise make sure it gets shade in the afternoon. How high is it? perhaps something disturbed them last year. Make sure it is in a safe place. Otherwise, I am not sure why they don’t like it.
