This is a great product that was easy to install and the birds seem to like it.
Well constructed, and I'm still training the bluebirds to use it before I put the Plexiglas side back on or close the top. Many of the birds I thought were bluebirds are actually indigo buntings!
The premise is great, but I would make it a bit larger. I feel it may be a little to confining for a Bluebird, once he's inside. Also where the hinge joint is I would add an overhang of cedar to keep water from leaking down into the interior, or somehow try to redesign to keep water out.. The roof should overhang the sides & front as well (maybe 1.75"), again keeping rain from running down the side, and possibly into the hole openings. The location of holes appears good, but so far although Bluebirds have entered from the front when the plexiglass has been removed initially for them to feed, I've had no luck getting them to enter via the holes when plexiglass is installed. I haven't given up, and will continue to be patient. All in all the idea to keep grackles & Starlings from emptying feeder is great, just needs a few tweaks here & there, to be the best bluebird feeder around.
