Other birds that will nest in a bluebird house

Modified from nabluebirdsociety.org
With the approach of spring the Eastern Bluebirds are beginning to search actively for places to nest. If you live in the country, near an open field or around a golf course that has open spaces and trees, you have a very good chance of attracting a nesting pair of bluebirds to your property.

Eastern Bluebirds are cavity nesters and prefer to nest in abandoned woodpecker nests or tree hollows. However bluebirds natural hunting fields over time have been reduced and old tree snags were eliminated.  

Wild Birds Unlimited - East Lansing, MI has several styles of functional bird houses that help Eastern Bluebirds or perhaps a Tree Swallows find a place to nest.

But if you live in the suburbs a “bluebird” house could also house some other common backyard birds like the House Sparrows, Black-capped Chickadees, Tufted Titmice, White-breasted Nuthatches, House Wrens and Carolina Wrens.
