Thanks! Well ive come to discover that it was not squirrels with further research it was either a bluejay or mocking bird. Poor squirrels... i got some fellow bluebird lovers to help me solve the crime... So they came down toa mockingbird or a bluejay...

hmm, they'd know far more than I do about the topic... but I would think it would be difficult for a blue jay to mess with it. That hole isn't very big, and blue jays are a bit big.
Any chance you've seen any blue jays or mockingbirds around?

Guess what CB...
this nesting box that I setup early last year, and I don't believe it ever got used...
I have a pair of bluebirds working on a nest in it now.
I've seen them in it a few times now, on different days.
The only problem is it's up on the side of a tree. No squirrel baffle is even possible.
Hopefully nothing will raid the nest...
The birds seem to like it so far, and I will try real hard to get some halfway decent pictures of them at some point this weekend. They're such beautiful birds.
