Bluebird Houses

The eastern bluebird is a favorite migratory songbird of birders and nonbirders alike. The bird's bright blue color and melodious song make it a welcome visitor to backyards. The history of the bluebird spans a series of struggles and successes and only recently, through active wildlife management, has its future been considered secure. During the days of frontier settlement, the bluebird was among the wildlife species that benefited from the decimation of the eastern forests. The conversion of forest into pasture, orchards, and homesites created an abundance of ideal bluebird habitat - open areas that supported the nesting and foraging activities of the species.

Farmers unintentionally assisted bluebirds by bordering their fields with wooden fence posts, thus supplying additional nesting sites. Combined, these factors led to a proliferation of bluebird numbers throughout the eastern United States through the mid-1800s. However, this situation changed in the late nineteenth century with the introduction of the European starling and the English house sparrow. In the twentieth century, increased use of harmful pesticides, replacement of wooden fence posts with metal posts, clearing of field borders and fence rows to increase cropland acreage, and a growing human population also contributed to population reductions.

Fortunately, the favored status of the bluebird and its acceptance of artificial nesting structures has led to increased efforts to boost its populations to sustainable levels. Placement of thousands of nest boxes by concerned individuals has contributed significantly to ensuring a future for the eastern bluebird. The ongoing recovery of the eastern bluebird is an example of how sound wildlife management practices have been used to increase the survival success of an individual wildlife species.

This pamphlet is designed to serve as an introduction to the habitat requirements of the eastern bluebird and to assist in the development of a comprehensive bluebird management plan. The success of any individual species management plan depends on targeting the specific needs of the species and analyzing the designated habitat areas as a whole to ensure that all required habitat elements are present. This guide also provides recommendations for program monitoring to document successes and to ensure that problems are addressed as they arise.

RANGE: Breeds east of the Rockies from southeastern Canada to Gulf of Mexico. Winters in southern part of breeding range and Mexico.
HABITAT: Enjoys open woodlands, fields and farmlands with scattered trees.

(12-1/2"h x 6"w x 8-1/2"d)
 

   
Coveside Economy Bluebird House
$27.95
Same functionality as our standard Eastern Bluebird House, but a "no frills" variety without the pretty features that don't impress the birds. For those who want to put up an extensive bluebird trail at a reasonable price.
(12-1/2"h x 6"w x 8"d)

 

   
Coveside Horizontal Bluebird Box
$39.95
Designed by Frank Zuern to be a safer nesting place for Eastern Bluebirds, this horizontal box simulates a hollow tree branch. Over 90% nest near the back of the box, behind a vertical baffle, out of the reach of predators.
RANGE: Breeds east of the Rockies from southeastern Canada to Gulf of Mexico. Winters in southern part of breeding range and Mexico.
HABITAT: Prefers open woodlands and farmlands with scattered trees.

(6-1/4"h x 6"w x 19-3/4"d)
 

   
Coveside Mountain Bluebird House
$35.95
The largest of the bluebird houses, this box provides an ideal cavity for the only "all-blue" bluebird.
RANGE:
Breeds from southern Alaska, Mackenzie and Manitoba south to western Nebraska, New Mexico, Arizona and west to the coast. Winters from British Columbia and Montana south through western U.S.
HABITAT: Breeds in high mountain meadows with scattered trees and bushes; in winter descends to lower elevations, where it prefers the plains and grasslands.

(12-1/2"h x 7-1/4"w x 9"d)
 

   
Coveside Open Top Bluebird House
$36.95
This sparrow-resistant house, similar to our standard bluebird house, has a circular opening in the roof. Naturally, bluebirds will nest in rotten fence posts and stumps, so sun and rain do not deter them. On the other hand, sparrows are not as tolerant. A durable, coated wire barrier prevents predators from entering through the top. In addition, a plastic cap is included to provide shelter after the bluebirds have started nesting and/or can be used to feed mealworms to hungry chicks.
RANGE: Breeds east of the Rockies from southeastern Canada to Gulf of Mexico. Winters in southern part of breeding range and Mexico.
HABITAT: Enjoys open woodlands, fields and farmlands with scattered trees.

(12-1/2"h x 6"w x 8-1/2"d)
 

   
Coveside Slant Front Bluebird House
$39.95
This design is popular because it discourages cats and other predators. Since the bottom tapers, less nesting material is needed. The front opens easily for observation and cleaning. Mount this box high on a post so that potential occupants can be easily observed from a distance.
RANGE: Breeds east of the Rockies from southeastern Canada to Gulf of Mexico. Winters in southern part of breeding range and Mexico.
HABITAT: Enjoys open woodlands, fields and farmlands with scattered trees.

(17"h x 7"w x 9"d)
 

   
Coveside Sparrow Resistant Bluebird House
$35.95
This Kentucky style, slot entrance bluebird house is designed to thwart sparrows. According to research at the University of Kentucky, bluebirds prefer a slot entrance to the standard circular hole -- sparrows prefer the opposite. In addition, sparrows don't like a shallow box and bluebirds don't seem to mind. This box is only 5" deep but if sparrows still continue to be a problem, a wooden insert is included to reduce the depth even more. Sparrows rarely use the 3-1/2" depth, but bluebirds will still occupy it.
RANGE: Breeds east of the Rockies from southeastern Canada to Gulf of Mexico. Winters in southern part of breeding range and Mexico.
HABITAT: Enjoys open woodlands, fields and farmlands with scattered trees.

(10"h x 6"w x 8-1/2"d)
 

   
Coveside Western Bluebird House
$37.95
Needing a slightly larger chamber and entrance hole than their eastern counterpart, this house is ideal for the vivid Western Bluebird.
RANGE:
Breeds in throughout the West, north from western Alberta and southern British Columbia, south down the West Coast to Baja and east to eastern New Mexico and western Texas. Winters within most of the breeding range.
HABITAT: Loves open woodlands and pastures.

(12-1/2"h x 6-3/4"w x 9"d)
