Free Birdhouse Plans for Bluebirds - Three Different Designs All Homemade Bird Houses

Eastern Bluebird

When using your free birdhouse plans for bluebirds be careful of predators. Predators of young bluebirds in the nests can include snakes, cats and raccoons.

Non-native and native bird species competing with bluebirds for nesting locations include the Common Starling, American Crow, and House Sparrow, which take over the nesting sites of bluebirds, killing young and smashing eggs and probably killing adult bluebirds too when they get a chance. This is why it is so important to make the entrance holes into nesting boxes and birdhouses only as big as the bird themselves, so as to keep other bird predators out.

Bluebirds eat insects and are partial to grubs. Bluebirds are attracted to platform bird feeders, filled with grubs of the darkling beetle, known as mealworms. Bluebirds will also eat raisins soaked in water. 

Bluebirds are territorial, prefering open grassland with scattered trees and are cavity nesters as are many species of woodpecker.
