Bluebirds are cavity nesters—they build their nests in enclosed spaces, such as tree cavities, old woodpecker holes, or in human-supplied nest boxes. In rural or remote areas, bluebirds seek natural cavities in trees, wooden posts or poles, old buildings, or wherever they can find them. But they must compete with other birds and animals for these limited nesting spaces, which is why providing nest boxes tailored for bluebirds helps these beautiful creatures to nest successfully. Having more bluebirds is always a good thing.
