Maintaining Your Bluebird Houses: Time for a tune-up! Granted, Mountain Bluebirds may not reappear until March, but with climate patterns becoming less predictable, why not start preparing for our migratory visitors.
February is a good time to do a little nest box maintenance. Clean nest boxes by removing old nesting material and disposing it far from the nest box to avoid attracting predators. Tighten screws, straighten mounting poles and install entrance hole reducers if they’ve been chewed and need repairing.
If you’re new to attracting bluebirds to your yard, give us a shout! We have a variety of bluebird boxes to choose from and helpful tips on where and how to put them up, as well as their favorite food – mealworms!
In conclusion, Birds & Beasley’s has all your birding needs! Give us a call with any questions at (406) 449–0904.
We are open Monday – Saturday from 9:30AM – 6PM and Sunday 11AM – 4PM.
