Sparrow-resistant Bluebird House

This is a great time to think about attracting bluebirds to your yard. Bluebirds like to nest on the edge of a field or open space, although if you put up a house for them, they might move in no matter where it is.

Make sure you get a house that is sparrow-proof as the sparrows will kick the bluebirds out before their chicks are old enough to be independent.

This sparrow-resistant bluebird house by Coveside has a slot entrance rather than a round hole. The sparrows prefer a round hole so they will avoid this house. They will also avoid this birdhouse because it is rather shallow in depth. Bluebirds don't mind a shallow depth for their house. Includes a wooden insert that will decrease the depth more if sparrows continue to be a problem.

Available at Amazon for $29.29.
