I also suspect that the weather has a lot to do with the sudden bluebird drought, but of possible interest is this story from the Hartford Courant today regarding West Nile Virus and bird populations, although I suspect this would not be the culprit in this sudden apparent decline.  I also agree with the final line of the story that blaming these declines solely on WNV may be too simplistic...a correlation does not prove causation:
