Well my bluebirds fledge all 4 of them on the same day but after they left I removed the nest cleaned it and I was done for now it’s been a couple of days and they never came back. They only visited once they went inside came out and left I never seen them in my yard ever since their the babies fledged I’m worried they won’t come back this was there first brood of they year and I got excited for there future broods. A pair of great crested flycatchers came by to check the nest box then left and never returned since. I don’t know what to do it’s almost a week since the babies fledged I’m freaking out

    Laura, there doesn’t seem to be any reason for worry. Once the babies fledge, it is normal for them to move off in search of food and learn how to survive. The parents will spend a few weeks with them, and their territory is certainly larger than just one person’s yard. If the bluebirds or flycatcher want to use the box, they will make a new nest. You don’t need to do anything else.
