Mountain Bluebirds at Wyoming High Country Lodge

Nest Box 1 on July 14th. We have 4 birds remaining. Not sure where the fifth bird went.

Mountain Bluebird at 8,990 feet

The progress of our Mountain Bluebird nestbox so far this year. We want these birds around because aside from being beautiful, they eat a lot of mosquitos. Of the three boxes around our high altitude meadow only this box attracted a nesting pair of birds. The other two boxes remain empty.
We are 30 miles east of Lovell Wyoming at 8,990 feet in the Bighorn National forest.
