I saw a male bluebird trying to entise a female to build a nest for him. I will take a look in the box in a few days to see if she decided to accept him as her mate. After the last nest of bluebirds fledged earlier this summer, I cleaned out the old nest and sprayed the box with Clorox, left the door open for it to dry, then it was all ready for the next family to move in! I put mealworms out everyday to try to keep them in my yard! I buy live mealworms at Petsmart ~ 100 of them for about $5. I tried the freeze dried ones a few years ago, but they wouldn't eat them. I store the container of mealworms in my garage refrigerator to keep them alive and fresh.
