Angela - I had over 200 BB boxes I monitored back when, here in Harwinton, and 3 broods are rare, and 2 common. Not always the same pair in the same box though.Heat is a problem - but never lost a brood from it. Do you have space above the front door for ventilation? 1/2" is best, plus I drilled a hole on each side near the top , all for ventilation.

A family of 4 bluebirds has returned to my garden, young still asking to be fed - now to my slight dismay in this heat, there are 4 eggs in the box used in June.  I've lost nestlings to heat before - what have other people experienced this late, or is this possibly 3rd laying normal?  The first eggs in May were duds, second lot fledged 3 or 4 - don't know of course if this is the same family.

Angela, according to Birds of New York State bluebirds can raise three broods and the latest egg date is August 18.
