The Peterson style bluebird house is an excellent selection for your backyard birding activities.  The bluebirds love it and so will you.  I have many bluebirds using them every year in my yard.  This house has room for a family of 5 to grow in comfortably.  See the many features of this house listed below.

Features include the following
  1. Construction
    1. Constructed from quality material.
  2. Specifications
    1. The overall specifications are H=20 1/2", W=7 1/4", D=11".  The oval entrance has an  entrance hole size of 1 3/8 x 2 ., which is centered approx 8 above floor.  The slotted design has a 1 3/8" slot at the top of the front panel.
  3. Assembly
    1. My houses are assembled with rust resistant decking screws for strength and durability.
    2. Although it is easier and much faster to assemble a house with Brads, staples and nails they have a tendency to loosen after a year or two and cause the house to separate at the joints.  Always buy houses that are assembled with screws.
  4. Slanted Oversize roof.
    1. It is important for the roof to be slanted so that the water will drain off freely, and the oversize roof minimized any water penetration at the top and sides.
  5. Ventilation
    1. Ventilation is provided to help control over heating of the nesting area. The buildup of heat in the house is a main problem for the bluebird and every effort should be made to help reduce this by ventilation, color, and placement of the house
    2. There is a ventilation gap of approx above the front panel and on each side of the house at the peak of the roof to help cool the house in hot weather.
  6. Cleaning and observation
    1. The front panel swings down from the top by loosening the top screw on the side above the entrance hole.  This allows for easy cleaning and viewing of the nest area to observe the young.
    2. Houses that open by removing or hinging the top are difficult to clean and the house should be cleaned after each brood.
  7. Mounting
    1. These houses have predrilled mounting holes for mounting to a wooden post, building, tree etc. 
    2. Mounting brackets for mounting to a farm T post are available for $1.50 ea.  You can also mount to a 1 round pipe and clamps, which are available at most hardware or plumbing stores.
  8. Weather protection
    1. All woods are subject to deterioration, splitting, warping and cracking from the elements.  Even the houses of cedar construction are subject to deterioration.  A good coat of clear finish or paint will prolong the life of this house and should be repainted occasionally to keep water from penetrating the wood.
