    I haven't got to use it as my blues are gone for the season but it arrived in super time and in excellent condition. I can't wait to use it next spring!

    Maybe a bit pricey, but product was as described and easy to assemble. Spring will tell.

    A thoughtful nesting box

    The person who designed this nesting box obviously thought a great deal about its features. The design is simple and we hope it will be attractive to bluebirds. The materials are made to last. The hole drilled into the top of the box is meant to receive a 1/2" conduit pipe. Our receiving hole was a bit tight. At Beth's suggestion, I warmed the hole with a hair drier and the pipe popped right in. We now await the arrival of mommy and daddy bluebirds.

    Gilbertson Nest Box

    We purchased this box because we were having trouble with house sparrows. Once we received the box, we immediately put it up and within a few hours the male and female bluebird had checked it out and started making a nest the next day! Checked the box today and there is one egg. We are so excited!
