Width & Length:
- Orient the nest box so that it is facing east into an open area.
- Some mid-day shade is desirable, but if box is to be placed in full sun, it should face south.
- Clean out old nests as soon as a brood fledges so that the nest box can be used for a second nest attempt.
- If House Sparrows are a problem, consider drilling a second entrance hole beside the first one (so that there are two separate but identical holes on the front panel) to enable bluebirds to better defend boxes from sparrows.
