Description

Our bluebird/tree swallow box was vacant this year. The wind blew open the door and before we could close it an Eastern Kingbird took occupancy. She just hatched three nestlings and stands watch over her nestlings.

    We have eastern kingbirds here in the Bitterroot Valley as well. I constructed a nest box based on your open box, Debi. Thank you for sharing!
