Maintaining Nest Boxes

The bluebird babies fledged, I now have empty nest syndrome. I did a little box maintenance today to scrape and rinse out the boxes just in case Mr. & Mrs. B decided to go for round two. I also knew that the Tree Swallow box had paper wasps building a future of their own so I went armed with gloves and needle-nosed pliers to remove the papery egg holder. I wasn't prepared for Mrs. Swallow to NOT want to give up her warm and comfy place in the box. I finally coaxed her out and it took mere seconds to pull the wasp nest from her home. She was back within minutes, but not before she dive bombed and chastised me for the disruption. 

How sweet is this face?
