A pair of bluebirds have finally returned to the same box used last year by bluebirds, as of early this week.  They are late.  Tree swallows are already nesting in a nearby box, where they were last year (and fighting off other swallows).  Last year bluebirds started claiming their box prior to the swallows arrival.  A third box remains empty and nobody appears interested in it.  (Also unused last year, although I replaced the old one with a spiffy new one last fall, thinking the old one was approaching substandard housing.)  All this occurring in my backyard in Charlotte.

  Is anyone in Chittenden seeing bluebirds or have any nesting? I saw some two weeks ago but none since. I have many tree swallows checking out boxes but noe have started nesting yet.
