In the past, bluebirds relied on woodpeckers and other cavity-dwellers to provide the majority of their nesting places.
Best of all, the swing-open side will give you a chance to peek in on the nestlings for whom you’ve provided a sturdy and safe home.
More Backyard ProjectsChandelier Birdhouse and PlanterWith just a few tweaks to a rummage sale find, you can create this elegant planter that also doubles as a birdhouse. The North American Bluebird Society, which provided the plans, says rural areas, cemeteries, golf courses and parkways with minimal human traffic are good places to mount these nesting boxes. You can check for nests of unwanted birds (since house sparrows and European starlings are not protected by law, simply remove their nests) and have easy access for cleaning out the bluebird’s nesting materials after the young have fledged.

As development wiped out many of these natural nesting sites, the bluebird population declined dramatically. You’ll want to do this immediately, since bluebirds often raise as many as three broods in one nesting season. For extra protection from predators, coat the pipe with grease and put hardware cloth under the box to deter snakes. Notches beneath the entrance hole provide footing for bluebirds, but discourage visits from competing house sparrows and wrens. Be careful not to over-tighten this screw because it will serve as a hinge for the side door.

They have fairly specific requirements, so these DIY birdhouse plans are designed to meet their needs.
