By surprise, I found another bluebird nestbox occupied and now has eggs in it. I have not spotted any bird frequenting the box, and did not expect it to be occupied, since the location has some foot traffic, so I am not sure what bird it is. In the close by car port, there is a pair of Say’s Phoebe nesting on a beam. (Recurring over the years).

I have two other bluebird boxes which are occupied by dusky-capped and ash-throated flycatchers.

Please see pics of the eggs and location of the nestbox. Thanks.

    Those are bluebird eggs, but based on location I’d say Western Bluebird is more likely.

    Maybe mountain.

    Try waiting near the box to see who visits.
