I'be had this volunteer job now two years. There was no data at all on the 30 boxes. They had been lumped together with other area reports.
First post.

most nestlings are swallows. Some 20-25 total hatched bluebirds typical, here 19.

Our bluebirds are just on the North end of resident birds. North of here they migrate South for winter. They survive on berries. I found several in the area:

Hello Esa
Your bluebirds are exceptionally beautiful and I have to say cute! So much like our resident Robin but with blue wings!
It has been snowing here today where I am, quite unexpectedly I might add and the garden has been full of birds searching out food from my bird stations. Lots of berries still available which is good, better to have natural food. I have a pair of resident Robins which I hope will take up a newly installed box in a few months time. Fingers crossed

Do send us some more pics of your native species your links are very interesting.
Kathy
