These numbers may change, there maybe some people who send in their statistics later. There were many reports of dead Nestling Bluebirds & dead Tree Swallows in the first week of May. when it was cold & rainy. It was unusually cold with lots of rain, at that time.
Please wash out your Birdhouses, if you haven’t already.
