Gilbertson Bluebird house

This is an excellent house for bluebirds. I had one made originally by Steve Gilbertson, but the wood top split, so I decided to buy a new one. I’m happy to know someone is making them again.On these new ones, though, I find that the screws that hold the house to the wood top are spaced too close together, making it very difficult to remove and replace the house. Yes, I squeeze the top of the house as much as I can in order to do this, and I hope I’m not going to force it into cracking.

We actually had some of the last Gilbertson Nest Boxes that Steve had made! Because PVC varies slightly in diameter, there is a number marked on the cavity and on roof to ensure they fit properly. These numbers should match... do the numbers match on your birdhouse?

Wonderful experience and birdhouse

I ordered this as I had sparrows interested in my regular bluebird box. It worked like a charm. Not only was delivery fast, but it included informational packets on bluebirds and all types of birds, which was also a nice touch. The house is working. If I had time, I probably could hve build my own, but I didn't have time. So, this was worth it for the speed, the quality, and getting my bluebirds a new place to next. Thanks!

Difficult to detach roof from body of house for inspecting the nest

Everything set up nicely, but once the house was installed, I am unable to twist it open as the directions describe. Squeezing the house gets me nowhere. I"m wondering if you have to have gigantic hands for this or perhaps I have a particularly tight product.

Hi Marion, Applying pressure directly below the roof of the Gilbertson usually releases the cavity easily for monitoring your bluebirds. Also, there is a number on the underside of roof and on the back of cavity. Could you please confirm these numbers match? Thanks so much~

Success!

Within two hours a pair was checking out the nest box. One week later they had completed their nest. Three weeks after putting up the Gilbertson nest box I had one beautiful egg. Hope there are more to come and they successfully hatch!
